THE STORY:

Dear Supporters,

This year I'll be running as a proud member of the Perkins Boston Marathon Team. I've seen the difference that Perkins makes in the lives of students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to succeed, and this is one opportunity I have to give back to the Perkins community. Throughout my professional career as an educator, I've had the pleasure of working with a lot of exceptional people who commit themselves everyday to educating and meeting the needs of all students both inside and outside of the classroom. Running for Perkins is just one way I can help to further ensure that Perkins students continue to benefit from a hardworking and dedicated staff and have the resources they need to strive in their environment.

Please support me and Perkins and help me reach my goal of $5,000. Any little bit helps! If you wish to donate offline you can send a check to the address below. Just be sure to put my name on the memo line and to make the check payable to Perkins.

Many thanks for your support!

Kathryn

A bit about Perkins...

Founded in 1829 as the first school for the blind in the United States, Perkins is committed to providing education and services that build productive, meaningful lives for children and adults around the world who are blind, deafblind, or visually impaired, including those with addtional disabilities.

Perkins is located on a 38-acre campus on the Charles River in Watertown, Massachusetts, with partner programs in 67 countries. Over 200 students populate Perkins' residential and day programs, thriving on the guidance of an exceptional interdisciplinary team of highly trained teachers, clinicians, residential and support staff.  Committed to developing each child's maximum level of self-reliance and independence, Perkins' staff designs an individualized educational play for each student. Students from birth to 22 years experience a wide range of skill-building activities, including everything from physical and language therapy to prevocational training and independent living skills.

Last year's team achieved great success, raising over $70,000 for Perkins. Our team is ready to run again this year and raise money to support Perkins and all that it does!
