THE STORY:

Seamus Hodgkinson wrote -

On November 19 I will participate in the JFK 50 miler which is one of the oldest ultra runs in the country, and was begun as part of President Kennedy's push for a fitter nation. The race begins in Maryland and ends in W. Virginia, and the first 18 miles are on the Appalachian trail. This is my fourth time competing, but the first in which I will be raising support for a cause and I am asking your help. The START Children's Center is in Troy N.Y. and its mission is to help reduce the trauma that children endure due to being a victim of abuse or a witness to violence. We all know the world can be a cruel place and children are both the most vulnerable and the most fragile victims. After a traumatic event their future well being, and ability to deal with the emotions, depends on caring and professional support. START helps provide that opportunity, and I am hoping that you can help me help them through this fundraiser. I'll dig deep to finish, if you'll dig a little too!
