I am a 45 year old wife and mother of 3 grown children. The oldest is off on his own, recently married begining life on his own as a new family, the second is currently in his final year of law school and will be working for the Attorney Generals Office in New Hampshire for his last semester, my youngest just graduated with a degree in public heatlth and is currenlty working toward attending an excellerated nursing program. I have been blessed with great kids.
I am married to my best friend and will be celebrating our 25 year anniversary this year. I hope we will finally be able to go on that second honeymoon we have always talked about. He is a plumber and currently works in sales. He was diagnosed with MS on my 40th birthday. Since then I have joined forces with another member of my community to fundraise for MS. We currenlty participate in Walk MS and the Muckfest under Team Orange and Fight the Good Fight. We have donated over $100,000 to MS and will continue our efforts
I am police officer for my local community. I have been a police officer for 21 years. I am currently assigned to the schools. This is a far different roll then I have had as an officer in the past. Working with childrens and families has its own set of challenges, but the rewards can be amazing.
In my spare time I enjoy camping (glamping that is inside with plumbing). My husband and I also enjoy motorcyling and take the bike camping with us now that the kids are grown. We love to be out doors hiking, or just sitting chatting by a camp fire.
Running The Boston Marathon has been a dream since I can remember. I have run 2 marathons, Maine Coast and Smutty Nose in Hampton, NH. I decided years ago that I wanted to run a marathon prior to my 40th birthday. I ran Smutty nose after losing over 62 pounds (sadly i've gained a bit of it back) at 39. It was a great experience and I was able to do it with my then 16 year old daugter. My second was the Maine Coast marathon this I did again with my daughter on Mother's Day. My goal is to run a marathon in all New England states then conquer the Dopey Challenge at Disney. I am over the moon that I was chosen to run Boston for Mass General Hospital and be part of thier First Responder Team. As a first responder I am well aware that seconds do count and training can make the difference between life or death. I am excited as I train, trying not to be discouraged at my less then stellar pace (slow and steady, I'll get there)!
My fudraising partner has graciously agreed to focus our fundraising efforts this year toward Mass General. All of our fundraising events will be donated to support Mass General's Emergency Response Team. We have already held a scratch ticket raffle generating $1500.00. Other fundraisers planned are a paint nite in February, Dance and raffle in March, and a Boston Strong 5k April 6th ran in conjuction with my local high school. I am blessed with many friends and family member who continue to support all of my crazy adventures.
