BENEFITING: Perkins School For The Blind
ORGANIZER: Perkins School For The Blind
EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 16, 2012
My goal in running for the Perkins School for the Blind is simple: to play a small part in helping children and adults who are blind, deafblind, or visually impaired, to lead the fullest, most productive lives.
For over 175 years, the Perkins School has helped students on- and off-campus to do just that, developing students’ ability to become as self-reliant and independent as possible. This means the school needs to be able to support a team of highly trained teachers, clinicians, residential and support staff. All of which takes money.
I’m a marathon runner who considers it a privilege to be able to run the 2012 Boston Marathon for the Perkins School. If you’d like to brighten the life of someone less fortunate than you, please donate whatever you can, as soon as you can.
On behalf of the students and staff, thank you!
