THE STORY:

I am deeply honored, humbled and excited to once more have been given the privilege to run as part of Team MR8 in honor of Martin Richard's memory, this time in the 2016 New York City Marathon.

Our family personally, as well as our tight-knit community, was greatly impacted by the loss of our little friend. I met the Richard family when my now 13 year old twins were in preschool, as we all live in the community of Dorchester. I’ve gotten to know the Richard family more closely over the years through our mutual involvement in local youth sports, community activities and through Neighborhood House Charter School, where our children and theirs have attended. I also had the pleasure of coaching Martin, Jane and Henry Richard over the years in our community soccer league. Martin's absence at school and on the soccer field is felt beyond words.

Having known Martin firsthand, a vibrant and lovable boy, the news of his passing brought our family deep sadness. Since that devastating day, I am continuously amazed at the Richard family’s incredible strength and ability to carry on with life in the face of such unimaginable loss. They are what inspires me. It gives me great pride to be able to support Martin's legacy of peace, and to support the Richard family. The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation will honor Martin's message of "No more hurting people - peace" by investing in education, athletics and community.

I have committed to raising a minimum of $3,000 to contribute to the Foundation, and need your help now in this effort to keep his memory alive, so please consider making a contribution of any amount.

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 please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
