BENEFITING: NEXT STEP FUND INC

EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016

THE STORY:

All of us at Next Step are extremely grateful and thrilled to be awarded two spots in the 120th Boston Marathon through the John Hancock Nonprofit Marathon Program. On April 18, 2016, our dedicated team will run with smiles and huge hearts on behalf of Next Step and our youth living with chronic life-threatening diseases.

Our 2016 Boston Marathon team is running so that we can welcome more youth than ever into the Next Step community, and ultimately, help them transition successfully to adulthood and into an adult healthcare system by providing them with free year-round programming.

What does this really mean?

Next Step programming is FREE to attend for teens and young adults living with cancer, blood diseases and rare genetic disorders. Our year-round programming includes:

Music therapy

Art therapy

Residential summer conferences

Advocacy & leadership opportunities on regional and national levels

Job-readiness workshops

Resume & cover letter consultation

Interview training

Community workshops & one-on-one mentoring

How do we do it?

We offer free year-round programming at our home, Next Step Central, in the Central Square neighborhood of Cambridge, MA and off-site in partnership with hospitals and healthcare organizations.

In the Next Step community, our participants feel safe sharing personal life experiences. Our participants connect with peers who truly understand their challenges, since they have been there too. At Next Step our young participants develop important life skills, knowledge, and the self-confidence they need to effectively manage their illness and find their sense of self outside of their medical condition. Our youth led non-clinical support and education programs help young people with chronic life-threatening illnesses move beyond "Why Me?" to "What's Next?" during their complicated journey to adulthood and an adult healthcare system.

Please consider donating to our 2016 Boston Marathon team to help us welcome more young people who desperately need our support.

Thank you so much for your amazing support. You are truly changing lives!
