THE STORY:

Dear Friends:

This April I'm running the Boston Marathon with Team National Braille Press.  Our team will run thousands of miles in preparation for April 15, where I will run the 26.2 miles; from Hopkinton to Boston! 

Braille Press is close to my heart for a couple of reasons.  My grandfather spent the last 5 years of his life completely blind and I saw first hand how hard it was for him to get to know the world around him.  I have also had problems with vision myself up to having a full cornea transplant.  

So now I'm helping the Braille Press by running to raise funds. I'm supporting them to give the gift of literacy to blind children and adults.  Both the National Braille Press and I believe that reading is not a privilege, but a right.  So we will be raising money so that they can produce children’s books like Curious George, Diary of A Wimpy Kid in braille with tactile graphics.  They also will produce bank statements, restaurant menus, college textbooks, and high school science and math books. 

Your support will give the gift of literacy to thousands of blind children and adults.  Thank you for believing that every blind child and adult should learn to read and write.
