THE STORY:

I have run the Boston Marathon five times for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  It is truly among the most memorable experiences of my life.  Last year, I was fortunate to have my 19-year old son run with me, making the day even more special.  I run the marathon to honor and remember those who cannot run, and hopefully to make a difference for all who have lost loved ones.

This year I’ll be running on behalf of The Children’s Room in Arlington, MA, the leading nonprofit grief support center in Massachusetts. At The Children’s Room, children, teens, and adults who have experienced the death of a close family member come together to receive support and understanding.

I’ll be running alongside one of my dearest friends, Nanci Gelb, with whom I have run each marathon. I know what The Children’s Room has done for Nanci and her children, especially her oldest daughter, Arielle.  I have seen Arielle perform with the Teen Performance Troupe and am so proud of the young woman she has become. I feel honored to be able to give back to the place that has meant so much to Nanci, Arielle, and their family.

The work The Children’s Room does is so meaningful and makes such a difference in the lives of those who have lost loved ones.  At each and every TCR event, I am overwhelmed by the warmth and compassion of all who attend, their staff and supporters, and those whose lives have been touched by The Children’s Room.

All of us have experienced loss in our lives.  I have lost both my mother and father and many dear friends.  Although I was an adult when my parents passed away, I was left with a tremendous void and still miss them every day.  I can’t imagine losing a parent earlier in my life, or a child or spouse at any time.  Through the kindness of my friends and even strangers, I was able to deal with my losses and channel what I learned to help friends and family who are coping with loss. 

What a wonderful gift of hope and compassion The Children’s Room offers to people who have suffered losses. Through support groups, educational programs, and outreach, those who are grieving are comforted with the knowledge that they are not alone. I am so inspired by their work and everyone whose lives they touch.

Please join me in supporting the amazing and compassionate staff and the excellent services they provide to grieving families by helping me reach my fundraising goal of $7,500. To make a secure donation to my fundraising page, click the donation button on the top right of this page. You may also send checks to The Children’s Room at 1210 Massachusetts Ave., Arlington, MA 02476. Please make your check out to “The Children’s Room” and write “Marathon/Terri” in the memo line so that your gift will count towards my goal.

 

Thank you so much for your support.

With love and appreciation,

Terri
