EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012
Hi Friends - this year I'm blessed to run my 10th Boston Marathon, and once again I'm raising much-needed funds for my favorite charity - Special Olympics Massachusetts. Running this race isn't easy, but it's nothing compared to the challenges and responsibilities the families/individuals served by Special Olympcis experience every day of their lives. So help me help them!

6 incredible individuals (aka Champions for the Special Olympics Movement) will be running the 2012 Boston Marathon in the name of dignity, unity, and health for people with intellectual disabilities. These six individuals will be training through the grueling Massachusetts winter and running 26.2 miles on April 16, with a collective goal of raising $40,000 to support the year-round athletic training, competition, and health-improvement programs of Special Olympics Massachusetts. Please visit their personal pages to learn more about the group and consider helping the team "change the world" for people with disabilities by donating and/or spreading the word!
