THE STORY:

I'm challenging myself to train and run the Boston Marathon to raise funds for the 600 individuals supported by Bay Cove's Developmental Disabilities Services.  This will be my third marathon and the first time running the famous Boston! I’ve been training hard for those notorious hills that Jim and Bill have warned me about.

The time and effort that goes into training and running the Boston Marathon, however, is insignificant compared to the life long challenges of the people we support in our community.  Every day I'm amazed at the determination and strength of those who face multiple developmental, physical and mental challenges. It takes courage, commitment and support to overcome the obstacles that people living with disabilities face each and every day.  Many of our clients are wheelchair bound, are fed through tubes and totally dependent on staff for dressing, bathing and eating. In spite of their challenges, they say "thank you", smile and rarely complain. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't learn something from the folks we support.  Their grace, patience and gratitude are truly inspiring.  I love the work I do at Bay Cove and I’m excited and honored to be running to raise money for people with developmental and physical disabilities.  This is my opportunity to give back to those who have given me so much. 

It is especially exciting to be giving back through running. There was a time when I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to run again. In October of 2008 I had a seizure yards from the finish line of the Tufts 10K for Women. After coming to and grumbling at the EMS personnel for not carrying me over the finish line (a lousy time is better than no time), I was admitted to Tufts Hospital and diagnosed with a brain hemorrhage. Fortunately, I was able to have neurosurgery to correct the issue. I'm eternally grateful for the immediate response of the EMS and the excellent healthcare I received that prevented significant long term damage. Running and completing races has been an essential key to recovery and healing.  I look forward to being able to raise money to contribute to the healing and rehabilitation of my clients.

Our mission is to provide full rich lives for people with the greatest challenges. Please help us continue to fulfill this mission by donating today.

Our team goal is $15,000. With your help I know we can do it!

Thank you for your support!
