BENEFITING: Perkins School For The Blind
ORGANIZER: Perkins School For The Blind
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
For those who know my family and me, our dear friends the Richissins have a daughter Ali who is blind and attended Perkins. I’ve known Ali since elementary school and throughout the years witnessed the influence Perkins had on her development and life skills. With the wonderful services provided by the school, Ali has grown into an intelligent, cheerful and vibrant person!
I’m running to help raise funds so that Perkins can continue to provide the wonderful services and resources to families like the Richissins!
Perkins is a national and international leader and resource providing state-of-the-art education and services to children and adults who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired, including those with additional disabilities. Our ultimate goal is to maximize the potential of every individual we serve—empowering them to lead proud, productive and meaningful lives.
Team Perkins is running the 2015 Boston Marathon® to raise funds to support Perkins’ programs and services on campus, in the community and around the world. All funds raised will be used to help children and adults who are blind, deafblind or visually impaired reach their full potential.
