Although I swore I would never run another marathon; this charity pulled me in such a way; I just had to throw my name in for one last time! Running a marathon for me isn't easy but running for these kids/families - makes the whole thing worth it. This center does more than just provide services to families that are caring for severely disabled children or adults - they are providng HOPE. And hope is a dwindling commodity in this world right now. Can you get on board to donating for hope? I know I can and I also know I can run 26.2 miles to keep that hope strong. This center RELIES on each and every runner. Our charitable donations make up 25% of their annual budget. While I know my goal is big; I also know we can all give up a thing or to so that I can really make a difference. Come along on this journey with me! You won't regret it!

See more about the charity below:
The Michael's Miracle Marathon Team is a Boston Marathon team to benefit The Michael Lisnow Respite Center. The Respite Center, located in Hopkinton just a mile from the starting line, is an official B.A.A. charity that provides services for children and adults with disabilities. We have several programs which include our Adult Day Program, Weekend Respite, After School Care, Day Care (birth - 3yrs), Employment Support for Individuals with Disabilities and Residential Placements.
As we begin 2018 and our 19th Boston Marathon season, our goal is to continue to increase respite and support services for families trying to survive the challenges of raising a child with disabilities. Last year the Respite Center raised just over $590,000 with a team of 72 runners. These funds made it possible to grant scholarships and also provide over 40,000 hours of service to families in need.
