THE STORY:

PLEASE SUPPORT ME AS I RUN MY 7th BOSTON MARATHON FOR THE MICHAEL CARTER LISNOW RESPITE CENTER!

When I ran my first Boston Marathon in 2009, I knew that I wanted to run for a smaller, local charity that focused on helping children in some way.  I found the Respite Center and immediately knew in my heart that it was the place.  Over the years I have been blessed to get to meet the families that are directly impacted by the funds that our marathon team raises, and if I could run a million miles for these people I would.  The sincere appreciation is palpable.  The services that are provided are amazing. This is a place that radiates love and acceptance and I am so honored to be a part of it.

The Michael Carter Lisnow Center is a non-profit organization that provides daycare, after-school care, and weekend respite services to children and adults with a range of disabilities. As the founder explained it, "If you have a child with severe disabilities, there are no breaks." In this population there is an 87% divorce rate because the care for children with severe disabilities is so incredibly intense. The demands on families are unimaginable. The strain of the day in and day out care leaves little, if any, room for parents.

I am asking for your donations to raise money for families who cannot afford to pay for the quality care their child receives at the center. 100% of the pledges you donate go directly to families who cannot afford care.  Anything that you can donate makes a difference and is so greatly appreciated.

Donation Levels:

$35 Pays for one day in the after school care program (4-21 years)

$60 Pays for a Friday or Saturday night out for 6 individuals

$100 Pays for one day in our Daycare Center for physical, occupational and developmental disabilities (ages birth - 4 years)

$125 Pays for one weekend overnight of respite care (gives families one weekend night off)

$250 Pays for one full weekend of respite care (gives families an entire weekend off)

$500 Pays for one week for an individual to participate in our summer program (5 full days) 

$1,000 Pays for one week of care for an individual to provide families an opportunity for vacation (5 days 5 overnights)

$3,000 Pays for one individual to stay for one weekend per month for a year

Any donation is extremely appreciated and will help change lives for years.

From the bottom of my heart, as always, THANK YOU!

Love, Erin

THE MICHAEL LISNOW RESPITE CENTER wrote -

The Michael's Miracle Marathon Team is a Boston Marathon team to benefit The Michael Lisnow Respite Center.  The Respite Center is an official B.A.A. charity that provides services for children and adults with disabilities. We have several programs which include our Adult Day Program, Weekend Respite, After School Care, Day Care (birth - 3yrs), Employment Support for Individuals with Disabilities and Residential Placements.

As we begin 2017 and our 18th Boston Marathon season, our goal is to continue to increase respite and support services for families trying to survive the challenges of raising a child with disabilities. Last year the Respite Center raised just over $600,000 with a team of 72 runners. These funds made it possible to grant scholarships and also provide over 40,000 hours of service to families in need.
