EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. I am honored to be running this years New York City Marathon for the Martin Richard Foundation.
The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation formed by the parents of eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the bombings at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.
The mission is simple: The Martin Richard Foundation honors Martin's message of "No more hurting people. Peace" by investing in education, athletics and community. Martin Richard’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence.
To Martin, peace meant things like togetherness, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and simple acts of kindness. His Foundation strives to encourage youth and adults to improve the lives of others and become bridge builders, peacemakers, leaders and entrepreneurs.
Your donation is truly appreciated. Let's keep Martin's message of Peace going! Thank you.
