As a young child, I remember watching in awe each April as the Marathon runners braved the long mileage, yet never felt that I had the courage to join their ranks. The events of last year changed my perspective. Being surrounded by a family full of nurses and civil servants, its not surprising that many of them were among the first responders who were directly involved in the events of that day, as well as in the challenging days that followed. The strength and resolve that they showed during that time has fueled me in my training over the past few months.
I can’t repay anyone for what they did to help that day, and that is why I have committed to raise $5,000 for the Greater Boston Food Bank, as it is my way to show the sense community we all felt is just as strong as it was one year ago.
One of the major tangible benefits of donating to the GBFB is that you know exactly how your money is being used: For every $1 dollar you donate, you will provide 3 meals for those in need. To put things in perspective, one in nine residents in eastern Massachusetts is food insecure. With regards to children, that number is as many as one in four. Being a dad to two beautiful red headed girls, one of which was born in the hours following the Marathon, it scares me to think of them ever having to feel true hunger. That is why I am asking for your help to support me in reaching this goal: To never let a member of our community go hungry.
