18 May Medford resident raises $17K for Boston Marathon team
Medford resident Jesse Edsell-Vetter recently raised $17,289 as a part of Boston-based nonprofit Metropolitan Boston Housing Partnership’s Boston Marathon team, which raises money for the charity and individual families they serve. This was Edsell-Vetter’s eighth year on the marathon team, which raised a total of $65,951 this year.
Edsell-Vetter broke his personal fundraising record of $13,000, well above the required $6,000 for each runner. He began working at MBHP in 2004, and launched the organization’s Hoarding Intervention program, which has helped more than 250 people in danger of eviction due to hoarding activity remain safely in their homes. Edsell-Vetter now heads up MBHP’s newly formed Center for Hoarding Intervention.
