THE STORY:

Support a Culture of Life in Boston!

I have been honored to support the work of Samaritans for the past two years. Losing a childhood choir director, a former colleague, and a friend from church was too much for me to stay on the sidelines of suicide prevention and awareness. Core to my own life spiritual journey is a celebration of abundant life. Let's elevate a culture of joy and compassion and health and resilience and friendship and... LIFE in our city.

#WeChoosetoLIVE

To this end, I'm running the 2017 Boston Marathon for Samaritans. While it will be my fourth marathon, it'll be my first that's tied to this embrace of life for our city. Most of us will never run Boston, but you can be part of the experience by joining my team.

This year, I'm looking for 40 people to give $100 or more, 40 people to give $50, and 40 people to give $25 to the cause. Be one of those people please! The money supports Samaritans' great work offering non-judgmental listening ears to folks in crisis, educating our city about mental health and suicide prevention, and offering compassionate recovery services to survivors of suicide and suicide attempts. 

I am a Samaritan. Won't you be one too?
