ORGANIZER: The Children's Room
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am so very honored to be part of The Childrens Room 2017 Boston Marathon Team. By raising funds and running the race, I hope to further the work of The Childrens Room, in gratitude for the help they have provided to the Pomakis family.
Jim Pomakis and I grew up together in Hull, MA and he remains a dear friend. In 2010, Jim’s wife Susanne died suddenly. Faced with both the devastation of losing his wife, and the responsibility of raising their children on his own, The Childrens Room was a source of emotional support at a critical time.
The 2017 Boston Marathon will be my fifth marathon, but the first time I will raise funds to support a cause close to my heart. My training and the journey from Hopkinton to Boston will have added meaning knowing each mile provides The Childrens Room with financial support to continue their compassionate work. So I run for Jim, James, May and in memory of Susanne (Mulvehill) Pomakis. And I run for all those families seeking the help of professionals dedicated to grief support.
Please consider sponsoring me by making a donation to The Childrens Room. I hope to see you cheering for all the runners on Monday, April 17, 2017.
