After participating in last years events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing, I thought the best way I could honor those injured and killed was to make sure the terrorist cowards out there know we are not afraid of them. The Boston Marathon will continue to be a Boston tradition where people can assemble to run and cheer on those running. We will truly be united in our stand against those who would seek to harm us through fear and intimidation. Although I have never run a marathon, I have been training hard and I'm confident I will finish.
Me, along with the other members of the Mass State Police have also made the commitment to raise at least $1000 for the charity Cops for Kids with Cancer. It is a small charity that raises and distributes funds to local families dealing with a child suffering from pediatric cancers. Please help me raise some funds for this worthy cause. Any amount makes a difference.
