EVENT: Boston Marathon 2014

EVENT DATE: Apr 21, 2014

Paul Gourley


On April 21, 2014 I will be running my second marathon and my first ever Boston Marathon to benefit the Melanoma Foundation of New England.  As many of you are aware, my wife Lynn was first diagnosed and treated for Melanoma in 2011.  After having a large portion of her calf taken away she has remained cancer free since that time (thank god).

She has shared her story via Facebook with friends and family (including cool and scary pictures) and now it is my turn to try and help promote awareness of this disease and things you can do to help prevent it.  If you've followed my blog(s) for the past two years ( and you'll know I love to run.  If you know me you'll also know I'm not your prototypical Marathoner.  But I know I can do this and I know I'd love you to join in the fun. You'll also know I've forever had a desire to run the biggest race in the world - the Boston Marathon.  Given the tragedies of 2013 I cannot tell you how excited I am to join "Team Running for Cover" and to have the opportunity to run the 2014 Boston Marathon to raise funds to support MFNE's mission.  All the terriorists in the world couldn't keep me away!

I can tell you that all money raised will be used to fund and expand these educational programs throughout the New England Area (and are all tax deductable).  I appreciate anything you can do to help me with my fundraising efforts and I hope you'll join me in this big adventure.  I'll continue to blog about it via the blog so you can follow along.
