THE STORY:

When I run for children, I run for God.

On April 20, 2015 I will be running the Boston Marathon in support of Camp Shriver, an organization that brings children with and without disabilities together so that they have the opportunity to create positive peer relationships and make new friends.

When I run for Camp Shriver, I run with Emmett.

My nephew, Emmett, was born with Smith Magenis Syndrome (http://www.prisms.org/), a developmental disorder that affects many parts of the body, including intellectual disability, delayed speech and language skills, sleep disturbances, and behavioral problems.

When Emmett received his life's package, he found complicated challenges inside. My brother and his wife lead him and their other children through long days. They do it with a strength, endurance, and stamina that that is indescribable. Running 26.2 miles is nothing compared to their daily walk.

Sometimes it is difficult to see the light in the middle of darkness. Sometimes it feels good to know that when you can't carry a burden alone, there are others who are willing to share the cross.

Emmett's perspective on life is unique. And contagious. He helps me see the details in things otherwise overlooked. When he runs, he takes twists and turns. When he runs, he stops to ask questions. When he runs, he is alert with curiosity and passion. If I can remember to run with half of Emmett's virtues, then I earn the right to call myself a real runner.

On April 20, I will run for children who can and cannot run easily.  For those who laugh at everything and nothing at all. I will run for children, I will run for Emmett, and I will run for God.  26.2 miles has nothing on those three.

Thank you for all you can do to help me run a better race.

A note from Camp Shriver:

For the past eight years, Camp Shriver at the University of Massachusetts Boston has welcomed over 800 children, half with and half without intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 8-12, from low income families in the Boston area to a free inclusive summer sports camp.

Camp Shriver serves an equal number of children with and without disabilities so that all children can play and learn—as equals.

All the funds raised by our fantastic Team Camp Shriver members will directly support sending over 100 children to camp this summer. With your support, and the support of these amazing indviduals running 26.2 miles for children with disabilities, we will make sure that all children have an opportunity to play and learn together this summer!

Camp Shriver is a program of the Center for Social Development and Education, a research institute at the University of Massachusetts Boston, responsible for raising 100% of its budget through foundation, corporate and individual donors.
