BENEFITING: JOURNEY FORWARD INC
ORGANIZER: JOURNEY FORWARD INC
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I will be running the 2017 Boston Marathon and need your support. I have committed to fundraising for Journey Forward which is a non-profit organization that helps people with spinal cord injuries get back on their feet.
Journey Forward helps people do what they were told they couldn't
With your generosity, Journey Forward will be able to grant scholarships for current and future clients who need assistance to cover the cost of physical therapy sessions. Unfortunately, these treatments are not entirely covered by insurance, or even at all. This puts additional burden and strain on the families. With your kind donation, we can lessen the burden and help progess the treatments. Treatments can cost upwards of $100 dollars an hour, so really any size donation is much appreciated!
I am honored to run for this organization. After graduating college my good friend moved to California and met Dan Cummings, who is now the founder. In 2008 they moved back to Boston where Dan and his brothers raised enough money to start Journey Forward. My good friend has been working with him ever since.
