THE STORY:

 

"There are those whose lives affect all others, quietly touching one heart who in turn touches another, reaching out to ends further than they would ever know..."

Suicide touches the lives of so many each and every day.  I lost one of my best friends to suicide on December 31, 2004.  Ashley was an amazingly wonderful, loving, fun, vibrant ray of sunshine in the lives of everyone she met.  Losing Ashley was one of the hardest things that I have ever gone through.  On December 10, 2010 my friend Wendy also took her own life.  Wendy was once a bubbly, fun-loving, charismatic person who could easily light up any room with her smile.  Both of these young women struggled with depression and suicidal feelings and sadly lost the battle that they fought every day. 

I will be running this year’s Boston Marathon in memory of my friends Ashley Kilburn-Peterson and Wendy Michelle Curtis.  I know that my angels will be with me every step of the way.  I hope that you will join me on this mission.  I want to contribute, inspire and give hope to those that need it.  I am running for our friends and families. I am running for those who have been through an experience like mine. I am running for those who fight the battle against suicide every day and for the people who love them.

All funds raised will support Samaritans, a nonprofit organization, with the mission of reducing the risk of suicide and increasing awareness about suicide prevention.  As the only suicide prevention organization in the greater Boston and MetroWest areas, Samaritans is an important resource to the community, providing a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week service that alleviates the isolation and emotional despair that can lead to suicide. Samaritans also provides support for those who have lost a loved one to suicide as well as community education to a variety of organizations throughout Greater Boston and Metrowest.

For more information on the Samaritans organization please visit the website at www.samaritansofboston.org.
