Hi all,

Just a quick but important update!

The Play Brigade was able to present a check today for $45,000 to the Dept of Parks & Recreation for the City of Boston, for inclusive play equipment at Franklin Park! This is a major milestone and the beginning of a lot of great things.

THANK YOU to all who helped by sponsoring me in the BAA 5K (and the Falmouth Road Race, still to come!). Your donations will make a DIRECT and LOCAL difference in the lives of kids with physical differences, who will now be able to play alongside their peers. :)

Thank you again....

Hello all :)

I just wanted to send out a pre-race thank you to tonight everyone who donated.

Truly, I am astounded and humbled to admit I have made $2230 for this campaign (as of 9pm, my bedtime before the race). :) This is (as of now) the highest on The Play Brigade running team through sponsors on Crowdrise! Crazy.... I didn't think I could do that.

This surpasses my goal and my hope is that The Play Brigade will be able to surpass their expectations and do more than they are thinking about right now, too. Maybe they won't only make public playgrounds in Brookline, MA accessible for our friends with physical challenges, but maybe eventually all over MA, or even nationwide.

Three miles doesn't seem like a lot to some, but the challenges many kids and families face daily don't seem like big hurdles to us, either. This race is a great metaphor for this and I'm so glad you chose to support the cause, as it means a lot to me.

Thank you all again!
With love and thanks,
Gretchen

I wanted to take a minute to thank EVERYONE who has supported me so far in my fundraising to run for The Play Brigade. The race is only a few short weeks away, but my sights are still set long-term!

I was able to secure one of 20 coveted bibs for the Falmouth Road Race this August, which were given to The Play Brigade. I know kids and families with physical challenges face overcoming obstacles again and again, so I've decided to take on the additional challenge of raising another $750 for the second race, as well as to lengthen the distance I am willing to run in public and be judged on. ;-)

This race is highly difficult to get into and is a local tradition on the Cape, so it's even more special to be running it for my friend Harper! If there's anywhere I'm going to run seven sweaty miles in August, it would have to be on my beloved Cape Cod (I assume there are bloody marys and oysters at the end?!)

I wanted to tell you that because of all of you, I have nearly reached the financial goal for BOTH races, just with my first race's 5K donations... THANK YOU.

I appreciate your support, your donations, your confidence in me, and your willingness to believe in The Play Brigade. Thank you all.

Hi Alysia and fam!!! Thanks…
Hi Alysia and fam!!!

Thanks so much!!! Amazing people just jumped in right away! It's so nice to have the sisterhood network, and so excited to see what happens with this. Dawn is super motivated and insane (as you know) when she sets her mind to something and as a past teacher, I am so excited to help her do this since I know what play means to kids' development and have seen her family face simple challenges so Harper can play in public places!

I really appreciate this and will keep updating everyone as her work makes progress!!!

In wine and blue :)
Love,
Gretchen
