Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,
On April 18, 2016, I will run my 15th marathon, my 8th Boston Marathon and for the 6th time I will be running for my friends at The Respite Center in Hopkinton, MA.
The Respite Center provides emotional and physical support for individuals with disabilities and their families. Now in their 17th year, the center serves hundreds of families.
It is my pleasure to be associated with an amazing group of people. The dedication, inspiration and simple goodness that is constantly on display at the Center is remarkable.
Please take a moment to visit www.hopkintonrespite.com to learn more about the center and about Michael’s amazing story.
Join me in giving a little bit of yourself to this great place and know that 100% of your contributions will go to providing direct services for adults and children in need of care.
The easiest way to donate is to visit my fundraising page...https://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiser/edit/michaelcarterlisnowboston2016/stephenbrien
Last year the Respite Center raised just over $600,000 with a team of 75 runners. These funds made it possible to grant scholarships and also provide over 40,000 hours of service to families in need.
