If you're reading this, thank you. Thank you for just taking the time to somehow land on my page and giving me more time by reading this. The reason you're here is because I am running the 2018 Boston Marathon. I am excited to run Boston for my 3rd time, but I am even more excited to be running as part of Team MR8, in support of The Martin Richard Foundation.
If you know me, then you likely already know this, but if you don't - here are three things that I absolutely love: Boston, kids, and doing what I can to make a difference in the world. Running for Team MR8 combines all of those things. Martin was young and had a vision for peace, justice, and kindness. I am young (at heart) and have the same vision. This is a perfect match. I am truly honored to be able to #RunForMartin and help make his vision come to life.
That said - I can't do it alone, nor do I want to. I need your help. Every dollar that I am able to raise will go directly toward all of the amazing work The Martin Richard Foundation does. Together, we can buid the world Martin envisioned.
Any and all support is tremendously appreciated. Thank you so very much in advance!
Love you too.

Founded in 2014, the Martin Richard Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin, who was killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. In the days after his death, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read “No more hurting people. Peace” was shared over the Internet. To Martin, peace meant togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and kindness.
