Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. Once again it is with great honor that I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon as a member of Team MR8.
"No more hurting people. PEACE"was a very simple statement from a young Martin Richard. Martin's statement of peace was a message that went global in the days after the tragedy.
Every time lace up my sneakers I think about Martin, the Richard family and all of our brave and courageous first responders. It helps me power through some very long and tough runs.
As a life long Dorchester resident I continue to witness the love and support of each other that we share as a community.
April 15th has also become a very special day for me. Each year ,the day serves as an opportunity to celebrate the resilency, generosity and strength demonstrated by the people of Boston and those around the world in response to the tragedy of April 15th,2013. On this day please #choosekindness and do something to help improve someone's life or your community.
Thank you for your love and support.
"No more hurting people. PEACE"
