THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my Samaritans Marathon Team fundraising page! I am incredibly honored to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise money and awareness for Samaritans, a non-profit dedicated to suicide prevention. Samaritans provides community education and outreach, a 24/7 help line, and grief support services.

I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon in memory of Preston Grover.  Preston was only 23 when we lost him. He was kind, fun to be around, a talented graphic designer, artist and truly passionate about music.  The 26.2 miles that I will be running on April 17th will be dedicated to Preston’s Mom (Terri) and sister (Kelsey) who have worked tirelessly to bring suicide awareness and prevention to the community. Suicide has touched the lives of many people that I know and love, which is why I will work hard to raise the funds needed for Samaritans to provide these much needed services.
