EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 18, 2016
The Boston Marathon has always held a special place in my heart. Many who know me, know that I was there during the bombings of 2013, and because of my location at the time, I saw most of the victims prior to triage and being taken to hospital.
It was a day that changed many lives, forever. That doesn't necessarily need to be seen as a bad thing. Although many legs were lost... compassion, kindness, strength, and gratitude were gained. It was a time for the human spirit to shine at it's brightest.
For many victims, including my friend Celeste Corcoran, Steve Chamberland's 50 Legs came to the call in their moment of need.
50 Legs gave many people their lives back. They empower amputees to live active and healthy lives. The work they do is truly inspirational.
Words cannot describe how it feels to be invited back to the city I love, to run for 50 Legs, and for Celeste.
I feel blessed that I can use my legs to help others get legs.
Please, if you can, help me to help 50 Legs in their mission to improve the lives of so many. Your donation will mean so much.
With all my heartfelt gratitude,
