BENEFITING: The Children's Room
ORGANIZER: The Children's Room
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
I lost my wife to cancer last year (after she successfully ran the 2012 Boston Marathon). I have 3 daughters (ages 18, 15, and 13). I view it as a personal mission to follow my wife’s example and run the marathon in her honor. I can think of no better way to honor her memory and the lives of my children than to run the marathon. I understand the deep need for the types of services the organization provides as I and my children are going through the grieving process. I am honored to support an organization that does the important work of healing hearts and souls after the loss of a loved one. The peer support groups at The Children’s Room are free of charge but it costs The Children’s Room $1,500 to enroll one child for one year. I see through the eyes and emotions of my own children, the great need that The Children’s Room fills.
