I like to welcome back returning guide Amy Eshleman as she was my 1st guide who ran Boston with me back in 2011. and Excited to run with Alexandra Truglio whom I'd met via email through a mutual friend and we have been doing some runs together in Central Park NY. My Friend Jenn Marano who qualified on her own for Boston will be supporting our team as an additional guide and we had ran NYC marathon 2x together. Looking forward to have fun and run for a great cause "TeamWithAVision" , you can read more about the organization below :

For the last 24 years members of Team With A Vision have toed the starting line on Marathon Monday and shown the world that with the right support anything is possible.
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 2017 Boston Athletic Association Boston Marathon Official Charity Program!
