On December 14, 2012 my life was changed forever. It started out a quiet Friday morning. I was leading a staff meeting. Halfway through the morning one of my coworkers shared that there was a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and that someone was shot in the foot. As everyone knows, that very early report drastically changed to our horror.
As an employee of the Boy Scouts of America, I waited in agony to learn about the identities of the victims. Much to my dismay five children had direct ties to our Cub Scout Pack 170 from Sandy Hook, including Our Tiger Cub Scout Chase.
Over the past two years I have had the privledge to get to know the Kowalski family and try to find a way to comfort and support them. Their strength and courage to find a way to turn a tragic event into something so positive for the community in Chases honor is truly inspiring!
This will be my third marathon, but first since 1991! It's my first Boston Marathon. This family and this charity is near and dear to me.
Please help me reach my goal of $5000 for this amazing charity. All I need is 100 $50 gifts. More would be awesome, of course less would be great too. In fact, if you could not only make a donation towards my effort, but ask 3 others to do the same, then the fundraising finish line will be reached that much quicker.
Thank you so much for your support on my Race4Chase!
