On April 15, 2013, Boston was changed forever. So too was the life of one of my close childhood friends, Gillian Reny, who was waiting to see her sister cross the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Gillian, like the rockstar that she is, is doing great today. The Reny family used this dark, life altering day as an opportunity to launch The Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Fund. The fund aims to fuel transformative trauma innovation for civilians and military personnel worldwide, so that everybody can have a chance at the same lifesaving care that Gillian received.
On July 20th, I will be participating in the 2019 Nantucket Triathlon in an effort to raise money for the Stepping Strong Center. I am incredibly appreciative of any and all donations, regardless of the size. Please consider donating to this cause that is so near and dear to my friends and me. Thank you!
