On Monday, April 21, 2014, I will set out to finish the Boston Marathon after being stopped three quarters of a mile to the finish last year due to the deadly bombing attack at the race. Qualifying and running in the most prestigious and oldest annual marathon in the world has been a lifetime goal. This year's race will be historic and I am honored to be running again with Team Hoyt, raising money for the Hoyt Foundation. It's a small but mighty non-profit whose mission is to empower and enhance the lives of people with physical disabilities so they can reach their full potential and life goals. Rick and Dick Hoyt's "never-give-up spirit" is truly inspiring and a lesson for all of us. I hope you will take the time to read their story, watch the video, donate to this worthy cause and help me reach my goal by April 21st! :)
As their motto goes: YES YOU CAN!
Many thanks in advance for your generous donations! Joann
