EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
I am honored to have the opportunity to run the 2015 Boston Marathon for the Massachusetts Association of Blind and Visually Impaired (MABVI); Team with a Vision. I have run 4 half marathons previously and this year Boston will be my first full marathon!
The Team’s goal is to raise $150,000 to support the services offered to residents throughout Massachusetts. The majority of their clients were not born blind but lost their vision later in life, the services offered by MABVI help them learn how to live with their new sight limitations.
Please considered supporting my efforts to fundraise for a Team with a Vision and sponsor my running of the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2015. Donating is easy and can be done safely and securely
