THE STORY:

Twin Cities in Motion: Healing Boston one mile at a time.

A race isn't a race without the support and love from the people on the sidelines. In fact, its usually because of their sacrifices leading up to and during the race that the race is even possible for runners. With the help of my own village of supporters, I am running the Twin Cities Marathon on October 6th to honor the victims who selflessly supported their family and friends at the Boston Marathon. Your donations will help the victims with the lifetime costs they face from their injuries. Here is an excerpt from Huffington Post article about the victim's futures:


"Cost of amputating a leg? At least $20,000. Cost of an artificial leg? More than $50,000 for the most high-tech models. Cost of an amputee's rehab? Often tens of thousands of dollars more.

These are just a fraction of the medical expenses victims of the Boston Marathon bombing will face."

(For the full article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/25/boston-victims-medical-costs_n_3156996.html?utm_hp_ref=impact&icid=maing-grid7|main5|dl1|sec1_lnk2&pLid=304398)

Beyond their practical needs, the victims need the same mental and emotional support they offered that day in Boston. Races represent the ability to overcome anything, and by continuing to run, we give them reason to keep fighting through the challenges they now face. By continuing to run, the selflessness they showed in Boston lives on -- it's felt during every training run, every morning when we need perspective, and at every race when we feel them cheering us to the finish.

Thank you for joining me in honoring the Boston Marathon victims through your donations and support.
