THE STORY:

I am delighted to be apart of Team Framingham's 2016 Boston Marathon Team! With careful consideration, I have chosen the Friends of the Callahan Senior Center as my charity. I was blessed with a special relationship with my grandmother, who raised me from my teen years through my adulthood until she passed away. My grandmother taught me many important lessons in life, one being that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to and that nothing worthwhile comes easy, it comes from lots of hard work. With several half marathons under my belt, this will be my first full marathon and getting to the starting line to complete those 26.2 miles is going to require a lot of hard work and dedication, especially during the brutal Boston winter! 

 I believe our seniors are the most special people with endless treasured stories and life experience to share with the younger generations. They deserve to enjoy every moment of their life with dignity and fun. The Callahan Senior Center, located in my new hometown of Framingham, Ma provides programming and services to our seniors. They provide games (scrabble, bridge) and exercise classes (Zumba, chair aerobics, table tennis). They provide health workshops for healthy eating, diabetes management, blood pressure clinics, and bereavement support. It's important for the seniors to have a fun safe place to go so that they can spend their days wisely and not feel alone. All proceeds from my fundraising endeavor will be used for their Continuing Connections program which helps people with dementia and their caretakers navigate their diagnosis. I am thrilled that every mile I run is for the good of this organization. 

I appreciate any support you can share, whether big or small. It all makes a difference and will give the Friends of the Callahan Senior Center,  funds to do more to enrich the lives of seniors. All proceeds go directly to the Friends of the Callahan Senior Center, a registered charity, EIN 51-0178058
