I run because I can.
When I get tired,
I remember those who can't run,
what they would give to have this
simple gift I take for granted,
and I run harder for them.
I know they would do the same for me.
April 15, 2013 is a day I will never forget. I have watched the Boston Marathon many times, watching my dad over the years and numerous friends. I was beyond thrilled to be sitting in the VIP seating at the finish line for the 117th Boston Marathon and to experience for the first time seeing the elite's finish. What started out as such an amazing experience and day ended very emotional and confusing. Having been so close when the events took place will always be with me. I pledge to run 26.2 miles by Marathon Monday, April 21 to raise money for the One Fund and in honor of all those affected by April 15.
Being a Freelance Design Consultant for John Hancock has been a wonderful experience, one I am proud of and each year I look forward to working on the branding and materials for the Boston Marathon.
I think of those injured by this event daily. Please consider making a donation to help them make their new normal a little easier. Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated.
