I am running the 2017 Boston Marathon in support of the New England Center for Children (NECC), where I work. I am proud to run the marathon and fundraise on behalf of this organization and all that it stands for. NECC transforms the lives of children with autism worldwide through the work they do everyday. I started working for NECC almost five years ago, and am constantly amazed at all they are able to accomplish. The students that I have worked with, and continue to work with, have inspired me to do more and be better, and I want to do all I can to enrich their lives as much as they have enriched mine. Part of this journey is raising money and awareness, which I will do in 2017 through running the Boston Marathon.
The struggles I will face training and running 26.2 is minimal compared to the struggles many of my students have faced and will continue to face in all aspects of their lives. Running is a passion of mine, and through this, I hope to bring more resources and education to my students in order to help them live fuller, healthier and more independ lives. This year, the money we raise will go towards adaptive physical education and equipment.
I hope you can help encourage and support me through this process. Whether that is through a donation, words of encouragement and support, or sharing and raising awareness, I am very thankful.
