Ever since I ran my half-marathon in September, I really wanted to continue to challenge myself with running. I figured the Falmouth Road Race would be a great race, especially since it's right on the beautiful coast of Cape Cod!
I am running for my non-profit organization, The Sports Museum. The reason why I am incredibly passionate about my job is because of our award-winning education program, Boston vs Bullies, which leverages the power and example of Boston sports to help stop bullying in our schools and our community. Boston vs. Bullies is provided to schools and organizations across Massachusetts free of charge. The video-based program features current athletes from all of Boston’s sports teams and provides kids with practical guidance, strategies and options grounded in the latest anti-bullying research. Since the full rollout began in Fall 2013, Boston vs. Bullies has impacted more than 48,000 students (grades 5-6), 1,000 teachers and 215 schools and organizations.
No one ever deserves to be bullied. Everyone should be accepted for who they are. My mission is to have each kid realize his/her full potential, and we're all supposed to be different. If we were all the same, we would live in such a boring world. Be different and be happy you're YOU.
