Dear Friends and Family,
I am beyond excited to be running this year’s Boston Marathon for with Martin Richard Foundation (Team MR8). Growing up in Newton, I spent countless years walking down to Comm Ave to cheer on the marathon runners as they passed. It has always been a dream of mine to be able to run this iconic race, and I can’t believe I’ll be able to make that dream a reality this year.
Beyond the thrill of running Boston at all, however, I consider it a true honor to be running it for such an incredible cause. The Martin Richard foundation was established in 2014 in honor of Martin Richard, an eight year old boy from Dorchester who was tragically killed in the bombing at the 2013 Boston Marathon.“The Martin Richard Foundation provides opportunities for individuals and communities to live out the values of peace, justice and kindness.” This mission came out of a photo of the 8 year old himself, holding a sign which read “No more hurting people. Peace.”
As an elementary school counselor, I cannot think of a mission more worthy and important in today’s world than that of the Martin Richard Foundation. All money raised goes towards supporting organizations that share this mission. Some of these organizations include: the Boston Police Athletic League, Boy's Hope Girls Hope Ohio, Boys and Girls Club of Dorchester, Brookline Teen Center, buildOn, Stamford, Connecticut Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover Foundation, Springfield, MA, Dorchester Youth Soccer, Edward M. Kennedy Institute, GenerationOn and many others.
I would be honored to have your support as I brave New England’s frigid winters ahead of this year’s Boston Marathon!
