I am privileged to be running the 119th Boston Marathon in support of Next Step. I hope you'll support me!
Next Step's mission is to Shatter Limitations and Elevate Aspirations of teenagers and young adults living with life-threatening diseases. The organization hosts retreats and workshops—at no cost to participants—that provide resources, support and hope during a period of transition that can be tumultuous even in the simplest of circumstances. These resources include:
- music therapy
- residential summer conferences
- personal growth & leadership workshops
- job-readiness projects through media
- resume & cover letter consultation
- interview training
Next Step youth are also given the opportunity to attend a week-long youth leadership conference every summer where we connect them with peers with similar medical challenges and professionals who truly "get it".
You can learn more about Next Step and my teammates here at Crowdrise and at www.nextstepnet.org. I hope you'll consider donating to our 2015 Boston Marathon team and help Next Step youth move beyond asking "Why Me" to "What's Next" when mapping out their future.
Thank you so much for your amazing support. You are truly changing lives!
