EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am running the 2015 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund. Gillian's familiy are third generation friends of my family and she was severly hurt in the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing. Gillian survived and is Boston Stronger than ever. Her family decided to turn their devastating experience into something positive by creating the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund which is dedicated to fueling innovative research and clinical programs to advance trauma healing. The Stepping Strong team's mission is to transform the future of medicine for patients and families the way the BWH transformed the lives of the Reny Family. Make a difference in the lives of patients and families for generations to come by supporting my second (crazy) decision to run the 2015 Boston Marathon! I thank you from the bottom of my heart and will use your generousity to fuel and energize my training and especially my race day.
