THE STORY:

Last year running the marathon was an overwhelming experience, and I am truly grateful for all the love and support from all of you. The marathon was so hard both mentally and physically, as I was running up the hills I said I would NEVER do it again!! But the Respite Center is such an amazing and magical place that this year, Jamie & I have decided to do it together and help raise more money!!! 

Thanks to all of you, we raised almost $10,000 last year! Our goal this year is to hit $15,000 and hopefully keep some if not all toenails this time! ;) and we need your help to do it!

Below is a link to our fundraising page, a little more info about the Respite Center and details about what your donation will provide. All of your donations will go directly to the scholarship fund and directly to helping families to receive services. 

I recently ran into a mother with her daughter that goes to the Respite Center and when I told her I was running again she teared up and said thank you and her daughter threw her arms around me and gave me a big hug. This is why we are running and we will remember this moment when those hills come around!

Thank you for helping us support this amazing place,

Jamie & Melanie

The Respite Center is a place that provides services for children and adults with disabilites. They have several programs which include an Adult Day Program, Weekend Respite, After School Care, Day Care (birth - 3yrs), Employment Support for Individuals with Disabilities and Residential Placements. As we begin 2016, the 17th Boston Marathon for the center, their goal is to continue to increase respite and support services for families trying to survive the challenges of raising a child with disabilities. All of your donations will go directly to the scholarship fund and directly to helping families to receive services.

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

$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 (birth - 4 years)
