THE STORY:

 

I am the father of John, who has Autism. He turns 10 this year and has been a student at NECC since age 4. John is my true inspiration. He works harder (and longer) at school than any kid his age while at the same time always living in the moment, never worrying about what others think, never coveting material things, and never being judgemental towards others. The world would be a happier place if we were all like John!

I am a runner who now only runs when I have to. Long ago (you know, back when I had copious amounts of free time) I competed in amateur road races, cycling events, and triathlons. Great fun, but not as much fun as raising John and his younger brother Will with my wife Julie. So I gave up endurance sporting for a long while to do the family thing. Either that or I got lazy. Then suddenly, back in 2008 came the opportunity to lace the shoes up for a cause more meaningful than any other in my life - NECC, or the institution responsible for shaping my son's life. Since then I've run three Boston marathons to benefit NECC and I'm ready for my fourth.

I am a participant who appreciates any donation no matter how big or small. To me each and every gift is personal. I consider them all to be both a loving pat on John's back (he really loves tickles too) and a humanitarian gesture directed towards a local cause in need. Autism is a growing worlwide epidemic, and the funds raised immediately benefit hundreds of local NECC students. I have seen firsthand how it makes a difference in their lives, while at the same time making NECC a jewel for the autism community, providing hope for the future.
