THE STORY:

Thank you for visiting my page!


As you may know, I have been invited to run in the 200 Mile Ragnar Relay Race with SMILE Mass, a fantastic non-profit based in my hometown of Sudbury!
 
My daughter Annmarie has been playing soccer with Annabelle Diomede and the two have become good friends over the years. But what many of Annabelle's friends from soccer didn't know, was that Annabelle has a brother, Nicholas, with severe disabilities. Nicholas is confined to a wheelchair, eats with a feeding tube, uses sign language to communicate etc. What amazed me about Nicholas is his ability to communicate, despite having no language skills.  His cheering for the girls when they play soccer and the excitement he expresses to everyone when the girls score is contagious and uplifting.  Therefore, when Lotte, Nicholas' mom, asked me to join her team in the Ragnar Relay and raise money for SMILE Mass, I could not say no.  Knowing that my little effort of running (which many of you know I love to do) and fundraising can make such a big difference for so many kids, right here in Massachusetts.  


SMILE Mass is a non-profit started by Annabelle's mom, Lotte. Not only does she run with her own child, but you will often see SMILE Mass bring out other individuals (kids and young adults) with disabilities in many of the road races they participate in. Therefore, I am asking for your support today to help me help SMILE Mass further their mission helping children and adults with disabilities, experience happy, healthy memories through vacation and recreation experiences.  Sponsor me today right on this page!
 
So, on May 12 - 13, I will be running in the 200 mile Ragnar Relay Cape Cod with 11 other SMILE Mass runners.  I will run approximate 18 miles over my 3 legs of distance.  My team will be physically exhausted and sleep deprived, but that is nothing compared to what kids like Nicholas face on a daily basis - with a smile on their faces!
 
Please support me today.  Any size donation is greatly appreciated. 


All donations are tax deductible.
