I wanted to thank you all for your generous donations and kind thoughts. The experience was amazing and I will never forget it.
The race was a brutal assault on the body, from dehydration to things bleeding that shouldn’t ever bleed. I was also overcome by the emotions that only this day could bring as well.
It was all a small price to pay because to folks outside of New England, Patriots' Day is just another Monday. It's coffee and rush hour and deadlines. To New Englanders, Patriots' Day is the year's greatest day. Because it's our day. It's First Beer at 9am and First Wave at 10am and First Pitch at 11am.
It is Marathon Monday, 27 miles (counting the walk to the starting line) of pride, a rowdy block party before the starts in Hopkinton then blends into the next party in Framingham, and then into Natick and Wellesley and Brookline and Newton, and then on to Boston, all to celebrate the region and the runners.
Because, to paraphrase Big Papi, this is our f---ing city.
Never before had our city been prouder than April 21, 2014. Not even when our Sox or our Celtics or our Bruins or our Patriots won world championships. Not ever. This was about more than pride. This was about closure.
Because on April 21, 2014, we ripped our city back from the clutches of cowardice. We showed up in droves -- an estimated 1 million people.
We had already rallied. For an entire year, Boston bonded together in support of those injured and killed in the marathon bombings. But this was the anniversary of the event. This was the ultimate display of Boston Strong. This was rebirth.
And I still can't believe I was a participant.
Thank you all for making this happen by donating to such a great cause.
Josh and Lisa Warren are amazing people and helped me get there.
And none of this would have been possible without the amazing spirit and partnership of my wife Ellen.

Truly Yours,

- Jon

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to send a final thank you to all of you who donated to Amirah through my fund raising campaign.

Through *your* donation Amirah will be able to continue their wonderful work of educating the local community about the human trafficking problem in general as well as in the Boston area. Your donation will also provide the support required for Amirah to run their residential center which provides whole person care for women trying to escape a life of commercial exploitation.

Please keep Amirah in your thoughts and prayers throughout the year. And please consider supporting Amirah financially on a regular basis. You can find more information on Amirah's web page and Facebook page:

http://www.amirahboston.org

An easy way to help Amirah financially is via Amazon Smile. Simply go to http://smile.amazon.com and choose Amirah as your charity. Then, whenever you shop at Amazon, shop from http://smile.amazon.com and %0.5 of every purchase will go to Amirah.

P.S.

For those of you wanting to track my progress through the race my Bib number is 12252. I am in wave 2 and my starting time is 10:25am.

Thank your generous donation…
Thank your generous donation! Your support will allow us to continue to provide our statewide network of vision rehabilitation services and to help those experiencing vision loss live with dignity and independence.

With only 12 days to go until Marathon Monday we are just $5,000 away from raising $150,000, by far the most we've ever raised at the Boston Marathon. We would love your help in closing that gap!

Please share the link below with friends, family, and co-workers, and invite them to join you in supporting Team With A Vision and the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired!
