This will be my first Boston Marathon. Since moving to New England in 2007 I have always had my eye on doing some of the great races in this area, and in my opinion, the Boston Marathon is the greatest race with the greatest impact on our community.
I am running the Boston Marathon this year for the Family Reach Foundation because I recently became aware that there exists a gap in our systems for families dealing with cancer. More specifically, when someone is being treated for cancer there are normally immense financial hardships that the family endures which our communities and systems are ill-equipped to support. This is where the Family Reach Foundation steps in, to alleviate some of the financial challenges for a family so they focus on their family member getting well.
I am honored to be a Reach Athlete Team Member for the Boston Marathon for 2015.
