Help me raise $10,000 for Understanding Our Differences!
I am very proud to be running the 2016 Boston Marathon for Understanding Our Differences (UOD). UOD embodies the values that I strive to teach my children and I am glad to help them bring their message to children everywhere. For more infomation visit their website here.
UOD’s disability awareness program teaches elementary school children to develop understanding and respect for fellow students and others with disabilities. This program helps to reduce bullying, intolerance, and creates an environment of respect where all children can thrive.
I have seen first hand how the children are taught to accept the differences among their peers. Understanding Our Differences works to make sure that children everywhere grow up to be respectful and welcoming of the differences that make our world interesting and beautiful.
