Michele Audet, 53, of Jamaica Plain, is running for the Boston Fund for Neighborhoods, a job and mentor program for local kids. Along with her team of volunteers, called "Michele Rocks," she has raised $2,000 so far. "In 2003 I took a picture at the finish line and I said, 'Someday I'm going to cross this,'" she said. Since she began training in November, she has lost 60 pounds.
