THE STORY:

PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE AND READ WHY I AM RUNNING THE 2012 BOSTON MARATHON AND WHY I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

I've decided to take matters into my own hands and give it everything I've got to raise both funds and awareness on behalf of Samaritans, Inc.! Not to mention the fact that this culminates with a not-so-ordinary run from Hopkington to Boston. I've never had to raise $5000, I'm not very outspoken and I've always said I can skate better than I can walk! I'm definitely stepping outside my comfort zone on this one, but i can assure you its for good reason....

In 2005, I lost my cousin Christian Caldaroni to suicide. As a family, we were devastated. Had it not been for Samaritans, Inc. we wouldnt of had anyone to turn to. The Samaritans not only offer grief support services but they also offer community education workshops, as well as 24 hour crisis helplines, both of which help PREVENT SUICIDE! I can't help but wonder if Christian had known about the Samaritans, would he still be with us today? Would he of picked up the phone and could his life have been spared? Ill never know the answer to this, but what I do know is that by spreading the message that the Samaritans are there when nobody else is, we will save lives.

The fact of the matter is that Samaritans Inc. is a non-profit organization and needs OUR HELP to continue to provide such needful services. By clicking the DONATE button on the upper right of this page you are supporting the Samaritans Inc., my marathon teammates and my efforts to prevent suicide! I've pledged to raise $5000, I feel this is the least I can do for such an amazing organization!
