THE STORY:

MARTIN W RICHARD CHARITABLE FOUNDATION INC wrote -

Dear Friends:

Since April 15, 2013, almost every race I’ve run I’ve dedicated to and have run in memory of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy from Boston who was killed on that tragic day.  This year will be my 45th Boston Marathon (and my 30th run at night - I feel old).  My son, Max, is running his first Boston Marathon this year.

We both are running on behalf of MR8 – the Martin Richard Foundation - which supports and emphasizes things like togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion and simple acts of kindness and strives to encourage youth and adults to improve the lives of others and become bridge builders, peacemakers, leaders and entrepreneurs. 

This will be a very special year for both of us.   Martin’s spirit and message will be with Max and me every step of the way.  I can’t imagine the pain of losing a child but this is a giving and peaceful way of dealing with the pain we all experienced on that tragic day.  We will never forget Martin.   Any contribution you can make is deeply appreciated and will never be forgotten. 

It is always tough for any of us to ask for money…but…this is different. 

Thank you so, so much for supporting our collective mission.

Dave McGillivray
