Dear family and friends,
I am very happy to announce that I have been blessed with the opportunity to run the 2015 Boston Marathon. This opportunity of a lifetime has been made possible for me by the Last Call Foundation in honor of fallen firefighter Michael Kennedy. The Last Call Foundation was founded by Kathy Crosby-Bell in honor of her son, fallen Firefighter Michael Ryan Kennedy, who along with Lieutenant Edward Walsh died battling the nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014 in Boston’s Back Bay. This tragedy highlighted the unique challenges facing Boston’s firefighters. The Last Call Foundation is committed to identifying and addressing these challenges to enhance Boston firefighters’ ability to safely and effectively fight fires and protect each of us. With your help, we can avoid future tragedy and, hopefully, save lives.
Running in the Boston Marathon has also been a dream of mine. Funds raised through my Crowdrise fundraising page will be given to the Last Call Foundation. They are a wonderful organization that provide funding, education and research to advance the safety needs of the Boston Firefighting community.
I can't thank you all enough. All donations, no matter how big or small, are very much appreciated.
