BENEFITING: RODMAN RIDE FOR KIDS
ORGANIZER: RODMAN RIDE FOR KIDS
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I am running the Boston Marathon to help support and raise money for children in foster care. Every day children are taken from their parents, homes, communities, and schools due to abuse, neglect, substance abuse, and mental health issues. The Department of Children and Families does its best to care for the children however, they are underfunded and do not have adequate staffing. Besides unconditional love and support, the children need clothes, food, school supplies, and scholarships for enrichment activities. This year I am blessed with the opportunity to adopt my beautiful son Caiden who is part of the foster care system. I can not express the amount of joy he brings to my life every moment. My daughter is thrilled to have a brother to love and we have gained many new extended family relationships with my son's biological family and community. Every child deserves a chance to thrive and become a happy, healthy, successful young adult. Please help make a difference for the children.
