My name is Hanna Adams and I am excited to be running my second Boston Marathon! I was born with cerebral palsy, right-sided hemiplegia, and learning disabilities. Throughout my journey, I’ve learned that I can go the distance if I set one goal at a time and work hard every day to improve. I attended the Threshold Program at Lesley University that accepts people with disabilities including cerebral palsy and autism. Thriving in this program with other young adults facing challenges, I learned that I can make a difference, reach my dreams, and go beyond. People with disabilities can learn to manage their differences and build on their strengths one day at a time. Every time when I step outside in my running shoes, I know I can get stronger. Running makes me feel relaxed, confident and free. I set my mind to reach my goal, put the work into training with my team, and I do finish! This coming year will be my eighth marathon and I feel honored to be a part of the DOUG FLUTIE JR. FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM, INC. I am proud to run strong with my differently abled peers in the Boston Marathon 2020 knowing we can all win together!
I dedicate my training and run this year to helping people with autism get the support & education they need to succeed. I am truly grateful to be part of this amazing team. I believe with your help we can make a change for all children and families coping with autism. Please consider making a donation towards my fundraising goal. Each dollar I raise will go directly to the DOUG FLUTIE JR. FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM, INC. and help people with autism. We are BOSTON STRONG!
