My name is Jason Callahan and am proud to call Michael Kennedy, a hero and Fallen Firefighter, my lifelong friend. I am honored to have the opportunity to run in this year’s Boston Marathon in memory of Mike, for the foundation created in his honor, The Last Call Foundation. The mission of the Last Call Foundation is to provide funding, education and research to advance the safety needs of the Boston firefighting community. I have personally committed to raise a minimum of five thousand dollars and I need your support to achieve this goal.
Whether we were skateboarding, snowboarding or jumping off the Quincy Quarries, Mike and I created a mountain of memories together. Later on in life, I had the privilege of living with Michael and cheering him on through his first Boston marathon. Mike was a Marine Combat Veteran, an influential Big Brother, in the Big Brother Big Sister program, an active member of the Wounded Warrior Project and a proud Boston firefighter. In every aspect of his life, he went above and beyond to help others. He was a great and cherished friend of mine. He sadly lost his life in the line of duty, doing what he loved best saving lives. In an effort to raise funds to run this Marathon for him, I am having a fundraiser on Friday March 20, 2015. During the fundraiser, we will hold a raffle and silent auction. I am reaching out to the community, the one that will forever hold Mike’s memory, for any help that they can offer. Donations of any kind, monetary or in kind donations, giftcertificates or merchandise for my local fund raise – Please Attend, would be greatly appreciated. All of the proceeds raised will give me the opportunity to run the Marathon for Mikes living memorial, the Last Call Foundation.
Monetary donations can be made online at crowdrise.com/lastcallfoundation/fundraiser/jasoncallahan. Please contact me with any and all questions at Jcallahanelectric@gmail.com.
Thank you very much all of your help,
A note from Kathy.
I would like to thank every one for the caring support of our hard working dedicated runner’s as they both train and fundraise. Most especially Jay who was such a friend to Michael, he has won my heart.
