It's been nearly 6 months since my epic charity running of the Boston Marathon back in April and I'm still in awe of what we've accomplished and thankful for everyone's inspiration and support.

This video was just filmed by CrossFitMedia and posted on their web site. I hope it provides you inspiration and pride.

I just wanted to thank everyone for supporting Vision42K and helping to raise nearly $20,000 to support NBP and their work to promote braille literacy. NBP is truly a special place doing amazing things thanks to your kindness. Recently NBP was featured on a local tv segment. Here's the link (http://www.wellesleymedia.org/inside-wellesley.html).

Just click the 'play button' on the video to see the power of your compassion in action.

You took the time to not only consider a charity like NBP and my fundraiser efforts but you provided generous donations that inspire and promote literacy. I am very thankful to and for each of you and I'll continue to honor your support with my commitment to making a difference for those in need.

I'll be sharing my next inspirational adventure via inspirethefire.com so stay tuned for that or drop me an email/voicemail and I'll make sure you get the scoop.

Btw, on a side note, thanks to all the online support and folks at Crowdrise we were also able to provide a scholarship to send an underprivileged child to Summer camp. How's that for not just doing good but doing great!! Thank everybody!

Respectfully yours,

Chris Cavallerano

Vision42K Sprint to the Fini…
Vision42K Sprint to the Finish

When Vision42K began it was just an idea... a BIG idea... with an even BIGGER social purpose... to raise funds in support of National Braille Press and literacy for blind children.

I couldn't have predicted the amazing support that I received. I couldn't have trained in blazing 90 degree heat to prepare for race-day conditions. I put my heart and mind to the test along with an indomitable spirit and I BELIEVED because YOU BELIEVED in me and the mission of NBP... and together WE did it!!

On April 16, 2012 I completed the 116th Boston Marathon blindfolded to show the world that anything is possible with the right support and determination. Many people opted-out of the race; 2,100 people required medical assistance; and 100s dropped out during the race. I lost 10 lbs. during the race. It was as brutal as it was beautiful but I was on a Mission and your support was the momentum that carried me to the Finish Line. Thank you.

I want to share a few exciting updates with you:
- If you'd like to hear and see a race recap just visit Vision42k.org (share your thoughts in the comments).
- Vision42K was selected as an Impact charity on the Crowdrise fundraising site (Think Oscars for Charity. This is HUGE!!)
http://www.crowdrise.com/community/impact
-The Magic of Multiples still applies... PLEASE spread the word, forward this email. We are up to $12K and rising and I know we can get to $15K by May 4.

I'm still working feverishly on Foundation/Corporate support to match contributions so if you have any ideas or know a company that wants to be associated with WINNING! and COURAGE tell them about Vision42K.

Together we truly have made Vision42K an Epic Charity Run.

Celebrate your support knowing you gave and joined Vision42K at it's inception... when the risk was at it's greatest and outcome most uncertain... share our victory for braille and literacy for all!

So if I can ask you one last favor, if it moves you as it has me, bring a few friends on board to collectively match what you've given. It will not only increase the dollars we raise but more than double the positive impact we can make in the lives of the visually impaired.

Together, let's sprint to the finish!!!

My deepest regards and thanks to all,

Chris Cavallerano

Quick update and race day info.

I'm totally amazed at the support that continues to come in as the Marathon is now merely 48 hours away.

We are up more than $11K and rising.

It looks like this will be the hottest Marathon day this century. I read somewhere that in 1907 it got to 100 degrees. I can't imagine running in those Pilgram outfits. Wow! ;-)

We are already winning and now my work is to represent your caring and support on race day. It may be a heavy load but you are the people and purpose that I chose to carry.

Whatever the distance / whatever the load / we are in it to do something Epic... TOGETHER... and we will!

If you want to follow my progress during the race you can go to the BAA site and sign up for Athlete Alerts via text or email.

My deepest thanks,

Thanks so much for your support Peter! I think I was crazy then and now I'm just that much crazier or inspired... probably a little bit of both. Ken's story is really amazing and inspiring. Having friends like you is what it is all about.

Thanks for sharing and caring.

Best,

Chris
