Those of you who know me are familiar with my love and passion for the outdoors and physical challenges, most especially in running. I’ve enjoyed running since age 15 but just a year ago, at 43, I began running long distances—completing two marathons and two ultras. In 2018, I accomplished my goal of running over 1700 miles (2800 km).
This coming spring, on April 15, 2019, I am hoping to accomplish another goal by running the 123rd Boston marathon. I am honored and thrilled to run this prestigious race on behalf of the Boston Bulldogs Running Club.
The Bulldogs, a 501(c)3 non-profit running club, is on a mission to provide an anonymous and safe community of support for all those adversely affected by addiction. They support those in recovery, their families and friends, the clinical community, and the community at large – and promote the importance of wellness and self-leadership in recovery.
Addiction is a growing problem and there is a dearth of services accessible to those affected. Running can play a vital role through the arduous recovery process. Beyond creating a critical sense of community, it also provides individuals a driving motivation— physically, mentally, and spiritually. My goal is to help the Bulldogs by raising $10,000 in order to support their commendable and much needed efforts. I am proud to be involved with this wonderful group of people and hope you’ll consider contributing to the Bulldogs by making a donation—no amount is too small.
With gratitude for your support,
