Dear Family and Friends,
On the 10th year anniversary of my cancer diagnosis, I am honored (to attempt) to run the 2015 Boston Marathon on behalf of Next Step and youth living with chronic life-threatening conditions such as cancer, HIV and rare genetic diseases.
I was so moved by my experience as a Next Step participant and believe so strongly in the organization that I recently joined as a Board Member (and am willing to run 26.2 miles!)
Our 2015 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.
Next Step programming is FREE to attend for youth living with HIV, cancer and rare genetic diseases. They participate in year-round programming that includes:
- music therapy
- personal growth & leadership workshops
- job-readiness projects through media
- resume & cover letter consultation
- interview training
Please 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.
With much gratitude,
Cancer Survivor, Husband, Father and Son
