THE STORY:

I am choosing to run The Boston Marathon and raise money for The Children’s Room. The Children’s Room provides comfort and support to children, teens and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Several years ago, my friend Brendan Counihan lost his beloved wife, Amy, to cancer. Brendan and his young daughter endured the pain that most of us hope to never experience. Through The Children’s Room, Emily found a place of comfort and support. 

Grief is something that does not end. It’s been ten years since I lost my mother and I still think about and miss her everyday. I also know how I felt when I lost my mother at thirty and felt that was way too soon. I can’t imagine a child having to deal with the loss of a loved one. I know through my own experience, working with a bereavement group after my mother’s death helped me and my family find a place where we could be ourselves, talk about our feelings and our loss and connect as a group. 

I am grateful that The Children’s Room exists and can help so many children, young adults and families find the support they need.  The Children’s Room is their safe haven.  This is a cause I truly believe in.  I am proud to run and raise money to help The Children’s Room continue to grow.
