THE STORY:

As many of you know, the Boston Marathon is one of the happiest times of the year for me. For awhile, those 26.2 miles were a personal challenge that I overcame for myself every year. While I’m ecstatic to run the marathon every year, it’s not only because I’m setting a personal goal –it’s also because, in running the marathon, I greatly help others. I have been running for the Massachusetts ...Down Syndrome Coalition for the past three years – not only the marathon, but smaller races as well. The raised money goes towards families who have children with downs syndrome. Last year, at the 30k mark, I felt like I was dying. I wanted to give up. Then, I saw three young adults part of MDSC. They all had downs syndrome. They passed me water, cheered for me, told me to not give up. Their smiles and their positivity moved me and helped me finish the race. At this time of year, I always struggle trying to find the perfect gift for my loved ones. As this holiday season comes to a close, I’m asking you to give a gift to those who need it the most. This year I would like to raise $7,000 for the cause. Any amount is acceptable – every dollar counts. I always find that it’s better to give than receive.
