Dear Incredibly Generous Fri…
Dear Incredibly Generous Friends and Family,

It has been one month since I crossed the finish line in Boston. During those 26.2 miles I felt the love and support of a million people along the course, but I also felt your love and support every step of the way, and I just wanted to send out one more thank you to all of you.

With all of your help, I raised $11,529 for Next Step, well over my goal. That money will provide 46 days of summer conference attendance for young people struggling with life-threatening illnesses. Participation in Next Step's innovative programs can be life-changing for these young people.

Our team also reached the larger goal of raising $40,000--an average of $10,000 per runner with hundreds of people making donations.

The generosity and care of so many people is humbling and inspiring. You should each be proud of your part in this amazing work. I am so proud of all of us.

Peace & Love,
Michele

Dear Friends, YOU TOTALLY R…
Dear Friends,

YOU TOTALLY ROCK!!!

I am so overwhelmed by your generosity. Over the course of the last four months you have helped me reach my fundraising goal ofover $10,000 for Next Step. That money will go directly to fund the array of programs they offer that provide support and community to young people struggling with the challenges of life threatening illness as they becoming adults.

What an amazing way to come together and do good in the world.

Thank you so much for helping me realize this dream and supporting me in so many ways.

I will be thinking of you all as I run to Boston tomorrow, knowing the whole time that whether I do well or not, I am doing good with every step, and so are you.

Love and many, many thanks,
Michele

P.S. My bib number is 30068 for anyone who wants to follow me tomorrow. My wave starts running at 11:25.
