Running For A Reason

BENEFITING: American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Thomas Doody

THE STORY:

I've completed the Dublin (Ireland) Marathon, the New York Marathon and an Ironman Triathlon...but running through the finish line on Boylston Street has always been a goal that seemed impossible at this point in my life.

The events of last year cast a shadow over this storied race, and furthered my desire to one day participate in this event. I was fortunate enough to have been offered - and accepted - an invitational entry into the marathon...and I'm determined to use this once in a lifetime opportunity to make a difference.

I'll be raising funds for several charities...including the Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I've suffered the loss of two family members (including one during my training for this event) who have taken their own lives. You are left with so many questions - What If?, Why?. Whatever the reasons, these people think they have nobody to turn to or nowhere to go. We need to change that, and we need to learn to recognize the signs of trouble and provide resources wherever and whenever we can.

Whether you can make a donation...send some words of encouragement...or even join me in Boston to celebrate...thank you for your support!

Boston Strong!
