Clark, Bratis, McMunn, RUN MDI!
July 06, 2017
In 2014, with the support of my friend Sam Felsenfeld, I ran the Mount Desert Island 1/2 Marathon in Maine. This race was a fantastic experience for me, and I'm so excited that this year, I am sharing this journey with my family! My mom, Audra, Reanna, Jason, and I are all training for this race together. To make this experience even better, we are running as part of the Operation Jack team.
Operation Jack is a great charity run by Sam that raises money for deserving organizations. For this race, we are raining money for the Mt. Desert Island Unified Basketball Team. The unified sport partners special education students [athletes] with regular education students [partners] and uses rules slightly different than the traditional version of the sport. The aim is to promote social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences.
