I am so excited to have the opportunity to run the 2018 Boston Marathon for Team Best Buddies! It is an honor to run for such a great cause in hopes of providing a more inclusive society for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). With all the chaos going on in the world right now, it is a perfect time to spread some love and support!
Best Buddies International is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Currently, Best Buddies Massachusetts serves over 6,700 direct program participants, including 153 school-based chapters and 115 Jobs participants. Proceeds from the Boston Marathon are fundamental in supporting the growth of our state programs that provide one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development.
Making my way from Hopkinton to Boylston Street will be tough, but with your help and support we can make a difference together and run for those who can't! Please consider donating and helping me reach my goal for such an awesome cause!
Team Best Buddies: Boston 2018 will be #racingforinclusion on April 16th and we can't wait to see you at the finish line!
