Mario Sousa Jr.
In 2018, I will be running my second Boston Marathon for The Michael Lisnow Respite Center.
Running The Boston Marathon for The Michael Lisnow Respite Center in 2017 was a dream come true for me. Training was difficult but I finished! It took me 6 hours to finish but I did it! The most important part of that year was what I was able to do for The Respite Center. The overwhelming generosity of my friends, family and community helped me to raise over $30,000.00 for The Respite Center! I was able to personally see the children and the programs this money helped to benefit.
This year, I intend to exceed last year. I have made it a goal to finish in 5 1/2 hours. Along with the vigorous training this will take, I have made it my personal goal to raise $40,000.00 to benefit The Michael Lisnow Respite Center. This money will help so many families receive scholarships to attend the programs at The Respite Center.
I love seeing the smiles on all the faces when I walk into The Respite Center. The love felt there is unparalleled. Running the Boston Marathon is an honor that I must persevere in my training to accomplish. Raising money for The Michael Lisnow Respite Center is a gift, one that you all can be a huge part of.
I thank you all for your support!
