THE STORY:

Hi Guys!

For those of you who don't know me, my name is Mary Lupoli! I am a nineteen year old sophomore at Bentley University. I am also a member of the women’s varsity soccer team at Bentley. The combination of my different experiences in both athletics and academics at Bentley has really taught me a lot about myself. Most importantly, Bentley has taught me the value behind giving back and helping out other individuals.

I was recently given the opportunity to run for the charity Best Buddies in the 2017 Boston Marathon. Best Buddies is an international nonprofit organization that is dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This was an opportunity that I could not pass down because I have such a strong connection to helping children with learning disabilities!

At Bentley University I am a part of a volunteer service where a few college students go to elementary schools in Waltham and help students with special needs interact with their peers during gym class! The entire experience is truly rewarding. I also have a very strong connection to this charity organization because a dear family friend of mine has Down Syndrome AND is an avid member of best buddies. His name is Chris Harrington and he lives in my hometown, Chelmsford Massachusetts. When I was given this opportunity, I couldn’t help but think of Chris and how much it would mean to both him and his family if I was able to run for such an incredible cause!

Chrissy has truly been an inspiration to me this entire journey and I know would not be where I am today without him!! Knowing that I am doing something so great for someone else, makes this entire adventure well worth it.

If it is not too much to ask, I would love your support in my race for Best Buddies! No donation is too small. Any donation, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated!! 

Thanks again! I couldn't be more excited to have such a special group of people supporting me. See you all on race day! :)

Kindest,

Mary
