I am honored to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise awareness and funds for Samaritans, a non-profit dedicated to preventing suicide and eliminating the stigma associated with mental health.
I am running the 2017 Boston Marathon in honor of one of my best friends, Wendy. Wendy's incomparable wit, compassion, and creativity made every moment with her feel like a special occasion. She had an incredible power to make those around her feel truly cared for and it was a privilege to be part of her life. I hope you will join me in honoring Wendy's memory and supporting this amazing organization!
All of the donations raised will go directly to Samaritans life-saving services. In addition to their 24-hour crisis hotline, Samaritans also offers grief-support to those who have lost loved ones to suicide and educates middle schoolers, high schoolers, and college students on suicide prevention. All of their services are provided free of charge.
Thank you in advance for your support and generousity!
