BENEFITING: Martin Richard Foundation
ORGANIZER: Martin Richard Foundation
EVENT: MR8 NYC Marathon
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I’m thrilled and honored to be running the New York City Marathon for Team MR8 to benefit the Martin Richard Foundation!
This will be my first marathon, and I’ll be running it in my beloved home city of New York. Most importantly, I’ll be running in honor of Martin Richard, the boy who was tragically killed in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. As you all know, my family and I live just outside Boston. Martin was the same age as my daughter Lily at the time of the bombings and attended school in Boston, where I have taught for 16 years. I have thought of his family so much over the years and this opportunity was one I could not pass up.
Please help me to support the foundation’s work in education, athletics and community, and to spread Martin’s message of “No more hurting people- peace.”
I am committed to crossing that finish line-with your help!
