BENEFITING: SHAWN THORNTON FOUNDATION INC
ORGANIZER: Shawn Thornton
EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
There are many reasons to run. A lot of people head out just for fun, some purely for fitness and others may look forward to a run as a brief escape from day-to-day life.
I've run for all of those reasons in the past but this training season and during the 2015 Boston Marathon I will be running for a different reason. To raise money for the Shawn Thornton Foundation which has a mission to help cure life-threatening diseases, specifically Parkinson’s and cancer.
This past summer my grandfather, Edward T. Norcott, passed away after a long battle with Parkinson's and I am running in his honor. He was a true family man who was always willing to lend a hand and go above and beyond what was required.
Please make a donation and help me reach my goal of $5,000.
Every donation, no matter how big or how small, goes towards raising awareness, funding innovative research and supporting those who are fighting every single day.
