June Volunteer Highlight
Emily Howard

"I was 16 years old when the IOCC Race to Respond team came to visit us at the Antiochian Village for summer camp. We were all lined up down the field when they rode in. It was cool to see such inspirational people. This was the first time I had heard of IOCC."

Eight years later, Emily is the person inspiring people young and old to get involved with IOCC. Emily has served as an active member of the Boston Metropolitan Committee for two years and recently ran in the Boston Marathon for IOCC. Emily took it upon herself to raise over $2,000 for IOCC while teaching, helping her parish, serving on the IOCC committee and training for the marathon.

When asked why she volunteers for IOCC, Emily said "It is something that is near and dear to my heart. I love being part of the Boston Metropolitan Committee. We meet once a month and it is easy to be a Parish Representative because I am already involved in my parish community. As a volunteer, I don't have to go out of my way to do a lot of extra work for IOCC. Also, it is nice to know what IOCC does and how it works and the fact that it only uses 8% of its funds for capital purposes. The more you learn about the work IOCC does, the more you are more willing to help. I hope IOCC will always be a big part of my life."

Emily, thank you for your consistent dedication and support. We hear that you are already planning on training and raising money for the Boston Marathon next year. Keep up the GREAT work!
