BENEFITING: ACCESSPORTAMERICA INC

ORGANIZER: ACCESSPORTAMERICA INC

EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

I am so excited to be running for AccesSportAmerica. As many of you know, I played a variety of sports growing up and into college and have enjoyed running since the eighth grade. Being part of a team and competing provides one with physical and mental well being.

 I moved to Boston last June to begin my residency training in physical medicine and rehabilitation. I could not pass up the  opportunity to raise money to provide athletic challenges for people with disabilities and run in the 2012 Boston Marathon. I am not sure which task is more daunting, raising $5000 or running 26.2 miles on one of the world's most historic marathon courses. With your support, we will contribute to the athletes of AccesSportAmerica and provide them the opportunities so many people take for granted.

Thank you for your contribution.

ACCESSPORTAMERICA INC wrote -

AccesSportAmerica, a national, non-profit founded in 1995, inspries higher function and fitness for children and adults of all disabilities through high-challenge sports and training.

AccesSportAmerica was founded by Executive Director Ross Lilley in 1995. At the time, Rev. Ross Lilley was the Minster at the South Acton Congregational Church in Acton, Massachusetts. Ross left his position in the summer of 2001 to devote his efforts full-time to AccesSportAmerica.

Prior to founding AccesSportAmerica, Ross had been adapting and teaching windsurfing for people with disabilities since 1984. A pioneer in adaptive equipment and training techniques, Ross serves as chief instructor and inventor for AccesSportAmerica so that windsurfing and other high-challenge water sports are possible for children and adults living with disabilities. AccesSportAmerica was the first to adapt the sport of windsurfing in the United States.

AccesSportAmerica first came to national attention when The Boston Globe reported on Ross and his son, Joshua born in 1985 with cerebral palsy and quadriplegia, windsurfing off the coast of Cape Cod. National coverage on ABC Good Morning America with Medical Editor Dr. Tim Johnson and in major windsurfing magazines soon followed.
