PENOBSCOT VALLEY HOCKEY CONFERENCE wrote -I am combining all of my passions. This is a simple idea for good. I love to run, I love to watch my boys learn the sport of hockey (my dad's favorite way to spend his time), I love raising money for charity (over $50,000 for a local children's charity), and I love my dad (who passed away March 7th this year). I told him I would run a full marathon before my 40th birthday (June 5th, 2014). I will run a full marathon for the first time in May of 2014. I will raise money throughout my training and donate to the youth hockey organization that my boys are a part of. This money will go into a scholarship fund, in my dad's honor, to support families of the youth hockey organization.
