Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! It is a true privilege to be running this year's Falmouth Road Race as a member of Team MR8.
I am HONORED to run for Martin once again.
On the afternoon of April 15, 2013 I was preparing the 5pm newscast at WCVB, counting down until some time off for school vacation with the kids.
Then suddenly time stopped.
The scanners in the Assignment Desk went wild. I can close my eyes and go back to that very moment. We went on the air and as information came in, the pain in my heart grew and grew. The next morning I woke to confirmation a little boy was among the victims. I couldn't fathom it. I got to work a short time later and a co-worker showed me a photo of a beautfiul little boy on his Communion Day. I had to excuse myself and go to the bathroom to cry. I later learned that boy was 8-year-old Martin Richard and he stood for PEACE. Since that tragic day I have learned so much from Martin and the Richard Family. His message has made me a better person and I have passed it along to my four children.
All of the money I raise on this page will directly benefit The Martin Richard Foundation. The Foundation honors Martin's message of "No more hurting people. Peace" by investing in education, athletics and community.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! #runformartin
