THE STORY:

It is such a joy for me to be able to return to Team MR8, to again support the Richard family and Martin's memory. I was part of the inaugural 2014 team, that helped launch the Foundation. While not there physically the last 2 years, I certainly was in spirit. I wore that 2014 MR8 singlet, with Martin's name, memory, and message across my back, while running London, Berlin, Tokyo, and (last week) Athens Greece. I heard his name called out in all those places!


     Those of us who ran the 2013 Boston Marathon became part of a fraternity we would have never chosen, and that could only come from our absolute worst nightmare. Following that day from Hell, a rare type of solidarity formed in the Boston community, and beyond, that led those who had suffered, back to life again. Key among those leading the way were the Richards. Their vision in creating The Martin Richard Foundation brings to mind a quote from one of Martin's heroes. It was Martin Luther King who said, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness: Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: Only love can do that."

     As this fourth MR8 Team embarks on furthering the noble mission to which Martin's Foundation espouses, let us all keep in our hearts, live our lives by, and set the example of what Martin once wrote on that school-project poster board: "No More Hurting People".
