THE STORY:

I have been a runner in some way, shape or form for over 30 years going back all the way to competitve running high school and college (Colgate University). I have always been a distance runner and have embraced the marathon as my true love over the past 6 years. When I'm not running, I'm coaching, blogging, exploring new music or fulfilling my duties as a mom.  I also like to drink coffee.  A lot.  This will be my first time guiding the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston, helping to navigate the course alongside a runner who is visually impaired. I am so excited to be giving back this year at the Boston Marathon and incredibly honored to be a member of Team With A Vision!

For the last 23 years members of Team With A Vision have toed the starting line on Marathon Monday and shown the world that 'disability' does not mean 'inability.' 

Our international team of blind and sighted runners race to support individuals throughout Massachusetts living with vision loss. Their efforts allow the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired to deliver professional, peer and volunteer support to over 1,100 individuals each year, giving them the support they need to live with dignity and independence.

All funds raised support MABVI's statewide network of vision rehabilitation services, which include 14 low vision clinics, 34 low vision support groups, and 300 volunteers matched 1:1 with blind individuals.

We are honored to be a part of the 2016 John Hancock Nonprofit Program!
