THE STORY:

Go Get  It!

A simple statement, yet it has so much meaning.  I perceive it as a challenging goal that only YOU can pursue.  The outcome….well it’s determined by YOU!

So I’ve decided to go get my first Boston Marathon.  And I won’t be doing it alone.  I am honored to say that I will be running the marathon for Team South Shore Hospital.  As a member of this team I will be focusing my fundraising efforts towards cancer care.

I would like to give back to this cause after personally witnessing family members and close friends battle this relentless war.  So please help me help others so they can be victorious in this battle.   Your support is greatly appreciated.  Remember no donation is too small! 

The Boston Marathon is Monday April 15th so mark it down on your calendars.  I will need a lot of support so I hope to see your cheering faces along the way. Thank you so much for your support and lets go get it!!
