BENEFITING: Perkins School For The Blind
ORGANIZER: Perkins School For The Blind
EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014
EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014
~~This year will be my second time running the Boston Marathon. I never thought that I would have ever run one, let alone two. As you all know, the tragic events that occurred during April of last year, stopped many of us from reaching the finish line. I am honored to have the opportunity to run again this year, not only for Perkins, but for myself and to finish what I had started. Please consider a donation to support Perkins School for the Blind. They are instrumental in providing children and adults who are blind, deafblind, and visually impaired learn and flourish throughout their lives. I hope to see you all out there! Thank you in advance for your support!
