THE STORY:

Last year, the Boston Marathon's 26.2 miles were bloodied at their finish. I, like so many, had to stop near the Pru on Boylston Street. This year, in running again for a cause and finishing the race, I tried to in some way to redeem the memory of 2013.

Christmas in the City, a charity that provides holiday and year-round services to children living in homelsss shelters, is my small way. Last year, this 100% volunteer organization received over $4,000 through your donations in support of my running the 2013 Boston Marathon. This year, I ran again but on a waiver because of the aborted finish. I am asking you to help me use the waiver to match and even exceed last year's contribution, and reach a $9,000 goal for both races. It's ambitious. Still, if ever there was a year ... this is the one.

Your help allows Christmas in the City to deliver a simple message to the over 4,500 children living in shelters across Greater Boston: there is good in the world, there is generosity and community and moments of joy that can give respite from ... from those other moments ... we don't stop when hope dims ... we don't quit ... because here ...  we're Boston strong.
