THE STORY:

As we all know, Marathon Monday did not turn out the way the way any of us could have ever dreamed it would turn out. And the vow I made to my husband Mike at mile 22 when my calves started to cramp that I'm never running the Boston marathon again is long forgotten. I have the opportunity to finish what I started not only for the Children's Room, but for all affected by last year's tragedy. And you all know that I'll never back down from a challenge. So I'm back at it again to raise money for the Children's Room. The Children’s Room creates safe, supportive communities so that no child, teen or family has to grieve alone.

I have always wanted to run the Boston Marathon ever since college when I went with my friends to watch the runners. I couldn’t believe the atmosphere. There were so many people cheering and holding signs. I got goose bumps and wished I was one of the runners. Years later, when I moved to Hopkinton, my family and I went to the starting line and once again I was overcome with the desire to run. Last year, I was selected to run for The Children’s Room. I was about a half mile away from the finish line when the bombs went off. I was so thankful that my family and friends were safe who were near the finish line. I felt robbed that I didn’t have the opportunity to cross the finish line but I am so thankful for the opportunity to run again this year.

I would appreciate any amount you could donate to assist me reach my fundraising goal of $5,000. Please click the donate button at the top of this page to make a secure online donation.
