Dear Friends and Family,
I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the Christmas season. As some of you may know, I have the privilege of running in the 2017 Boston Marathon. I am very excited to be running not only for myself but for a special cause that is close to my heart. I will be running for Journey Forward which is a spinal cord injury rehabilitation center located outside of Boston in Canton, Massachusetts. Most of you know, this cause hits close to home for me and my family. My mother in law, Parker, has battled with spinal cord injury over the past 6 years.
Journey Forward helps patients work toward adjusting to life with a spinal cord injury and getting back to living life to the fullest in a new way. Journey Forward is a non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of those who have suffered a Spinal Cord Injury through an intense exercise program. They work with Spinal Cord Injured clients of all levels and abilities in a very active and full body approach.
My goal in running this marathon is to raise awareness of spinal cord injury and to raise $10,000 dollars to help benefit Journey Forward. I am blessed to have the ability to do the hard part of running the marathon, I am asking you to do the easy part by making a donation to benefit this amazing organization. Lets make a difference for all of those affected by spinal cord injury.
*I have attached a video from Chris Boshar. Chris was on Parker’s hall at the Shepherd Center and became one of our close friends there. Once returning home to Boston, he started therapy at Journey Forward.
