THE STORY:

Hello friends!

I'm honored to be running the Boston Marathon this year as part of Team With A Vision, a group who is fundraising for The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

The 2014 Boston Marathon and this organization are both very important to me.  For many years, I pursued the dream of becoming an officer in the United States Marine Corps.  As a teenager, I was diagnosed with lattice degeneration; this is a thinning of the retina that is relatively common in near sighted people.  After several years of procedures that treated the condition with lasers, cauterizing my retinas to the back of my eyes, I was unsuccessful in getting a medical waiver.

Ultimately, these treatments allowed me to find another way to serve.  I am currently a Federal Agent with the United States Department of Justice.  I was formerly assigned to the Boston Division, before being stationed in Oakland, California.  As a law enforcement officer and native of Massachusetts, the events of 2013 have reinforced my love for our great city; and have shown the nation and the world that the things which unite us are greater than the things which divide us.

The 2014 Boston Marathon will be extremely important to our city and our nation.  On behalf of Team With A Vision and the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired, thank you so much for your support and continuing to show through your donation the meaning of "Boston Strong".

Thanks to the John Hancock Nonprofit Program, the Team With A Vision has received bib numbers for the 2014 Boston Marathon. This will be the 21st year that our international team of blind, visually impaired, and sighted runners races in Boston to help individuals with visual impairments receive the professional, peer and volunteer support they need to live with dignity and independence. Funds raised support MABVI's statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, which include 3 low vision clinics, 33 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.
