THE STORY:


I'm running the Hartford Maration to raise money for the Healing Meals Community Project. (not the whole marathon -- I'm on a relay team!)

Healing Meals is especially meaningful to me because each week I deliver a week's worth of healthy, organic meals to families impacted by a health crisis.  Healing Meals provides those meals solely through donations and volunteer effort.  Most of the volunteers are teens who give up their Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings to prepare 150 or more meals each week for people facing a health crisis and their families.

Through volunteering with Healing Meals, I've seen firsthand the incredible impact this organization has on the lives of its clients.  Clients I've delivered to have included:

- a mom of young children who depended on these meals to feed her family while undergoing treatment

- an elderly woman living alone who greeted me every week with a huge hug and kiss, and tearfully told me she didn't know what she would do without these meals

- a woman living alone with multiple chronic conditions impacting her mobility, unable to drive, and no local family support

Sometimes being a Delivery Angel results in being a shoulder to cry on, sometimes a person to celebrate with, and ALWAYS results me knowing that this organization makes a difference. During a time of stress and uncertainty, having healthy meals at the ready provides sustenence and one less worry.

I run because I can. Please join me in supporting Healing Meals by sponsoring my Hartford Marathon team. 

Thank you,  Lori

A message from Healing Meals

Every year in Connecticut, over 22,000 men, women and children are diagnosed with cancer and several thousand more are fighting for their lives as they face other critical conditions. It's at this time that healing foods and support are needed most but many don't have these resources, which is overwhelming! Healing Meals Community Project provides 100% organic meals for 12 weeks for free, or at a reduced price, for the entire family.  This gives them the nourishment and peace of mind to help them heal more quickly. When someone faces a health crisis, there are so many things they can't do. On October 14th, we will run on their behalf in the Hartford Marathon along with our caring community partner Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Center to raise money to support 500 more families ..... because we can! Please consider sponsoring us or joining us! -- Healing Meals Community Project
