As Many of you know I have struggled with weightloss my entire life. I've overcome illness, loss, and heartbreak. About a year ago I began a transformation journey. A journey that would not only transform my outward person, but also transform my heart. When I set out on my journey, I wanted to not only transform myself, but also help transform the world. I have had many stops along the way but the greatest stop I have is still yet to come. I am undertaking the running of my very first marathon, and though that may seem like an exciting and daunting task, the greatest piece of this journey is WHY I've chosen to make this race, a stop along my way. You see, I've chosen to run for an organization whose mission is to help transform the lives of people every day. The Michael Lisnow Respite center gives hope and love in support of children and adults with disabilities. They provide a place for families to thrive, and in turn by being a part of their extended family, they have helped to transform not only my heart, but each one of the many children and adults who have had the privlege to be a part of their family. The funds I raise will make it possible to grant scholarships and also provide countless hours of services to familes in need.
The Michael's Miracle Marathon Team is a Boston Marathon team to benefit The Michael Lisnow Respite Center. The Respite Center has several programs which include Adult Day Program, Weekend Respite, After School Care, Day Care (birth - 3yrs), Employment Support for Individuals with Disabilities and Residential Placements. The Respite Center continually strives to increase support and services for familes trying to survive the challenges of raising a child with disabilities.
I want to say THANK YOU to each one of you who have been a part of my transformation journey. I also want to ask you for your continued support, as we come together as a team and continue to transform the world. Michael Lisnow was an amazing miracle boy. Michael was the true meaning of transformation. He continues to transform our world for the better. By supporting my journey you are helping to support change and greatest in our world.
