THE STORY:

I couldn’t be more excited to announce that on April 21, 2014, I will be running the Boston Marathon on behalf of The Children’s Room (TCR)! As many of you know I started as a volunteer at The Children’s Room in 2011 to fulfill a lifelong dream of working with kids. At the time I just wanted to get some experience; I had no idea how incredibly influential the experience would truly turn out to be and the many ways my life would be affected. I am overwhelmed with love and joy each and every time I enter the beautiful yellow house that is the home of The Children’s Room and honestly admit that there is nothing that compares to the incredible work that is done with the children and families of TCR.

The Children’s Room is a bereavement center that provides comfort and support to grieving children, teens and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. The children and families that I have met and worked with at TCR have allowed me to observe first-hand just how difficult the grieving process can be, but more importantly how powerful a loving, supportive environment is during such difficult times. I have had the opportunity to witness time and time again how the guidance of TCR has given families the strength and confidence they need to be able to heal and continue moving forward with their lives. In fact, working with these incredible children and families has been so influential for me that I have decided to earn my graduate degree in Expressive Therapies and Mental Health Counseling so that I can do this work full time. I started my graduate program at Lesley University this fall and the experience has been nothing short of insightful, powerful and rewarding. As I start this new journey in my life towards a career in Expressive Therapy with hopes to continue helping children and families just like those of The Children’s Room I can’t think of any other way to express my gratitude than to run with The Children’s Room Miles and Memories Marathon Team of 2014.

If you’d like to make a donation to The Children’s Room, please know that it’ll go a long way.  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 and every dollar I raise will directly support grieving children, teens and families. For this reason, individual fundraising and donations are critical to its survival and growth.  Please consider supporting my run and a great cause!

Thank you for your support. I’ll be grateful for any donation you can make!
