Hey Donors, I finished the race! My quads were very sore for two days but it was all worth it. The weather on Sunday was HOT. The Boston House  See more

THE STORY:

I know that somewhere deep in my dresser, there is an old musty purple jersey that says Cloquet Cross Country Running in big black letters. I know that my bright red Bruce Springsteen bandana is both a competent sweatband and an enviable fashion accessory. I know that I will need both this summer because…I’m training to run Falmouth Road Race for The Boston House! The Boston House (new name) is a home-away-from-home for children with cancer and their families. We provide, safe and comfortable rooms and apartments for families as they deal with the frightening realities childhood cancer. Many of our families travel a very long way from home to get the best pediatric cancer care in the world at Boston Children’s Hospital or the Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic. Since I started working at The House, I’ve come to know many of these families like neighbors and I know that they depend on us while they are relocated to Boston. Some families stay with us for a couple of days, some for a year or more. I’m running Falmouth Road Race for them. Race day is Sunday, August 20 and our fundraising deadline is my 30th birthday, Thursday, September 14. I have a goal of $1,000 and all donations I receive will be considered unrestricted funds, used to cover the cost of hosting families at The House. Thank you for your support! Jamie
