THE STORY:

In 2008 I was overwhelmed by the love and support I received in response to my coming out to my family and friends.  I had been feeling a lot of anxiety and nerves about my decision and the reaction I would receive, and for no reason.  The people who have cared about me and loved me my entire life, continued to and helped me feel confident and secure in whom I am.  Unfortunately, there are many gay men and women who are not treated with such encouragement and instead experience a great deal of backlash and sometimes abandonment from those they care about.  I know how fortunate I am and feel it necessary to pay it forward by showing the same love and concern for other homosexuals who are coming to terms with their identity and need acceptance.  I have decided to run the Boston Marathon with the Parents Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) to help show my dedication to helping others that I can relate to.  I have been in their shoes and wish they could experience the continuous and overwhelming love that you all have shown me.  I would appreciate if you would continue to be a part of my journey, and the 26.2 miles, and support me in any way possible.  Donations would be greatly appreciated; however, there is no pressure because your support has been enough.  Thanks for everything.
