Story

I am happy and humbled to announce that I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon for the most wonderful place I know...The Michael Lisnow Respite Center. The center is a day program for adults with disabilities. It also offers respite overnights, has two daycare centers and we own and manage 4 group homes.

Please let me share with you why I am running...

Over twenty years ago I walked through the doors of the respite center for the first time. I was 14 years old and volunteering for a high school requirement. Today I am 36 and not only has the center become a huge piece of my life but also a huge piece of my heart. I quickly learned the center is not just a place for adults and children with disabilities but truly a home away from home for these individuals and their families. Our daycare center is a place where a mom can drop of her medically fragile child and go grocery shopping without taking a special wheelchair and medical equipment to the store with her. Or maybe that mom gets to go home and take a nap because she’s been up all night taking care of that child. Our day program is a place where the adults come to grow, learn and form lifelong friendships. From sports clubs, spa groups to baking classes and super fun field trips, I look forward to each and every day I go to work.

During the time I have been here I’ve grown as a person and watched the people around me grow as well. I was able to see a little boy, whose family was told he would never walk, take his first steps. Yes, we all cried. I was there when a little girl who was tube fed for the first three years of her life put food to her lips for the first time. Yes, we all jumped for joy. I had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at Fenway Park with a man with Down’s Syndrom. Yes, we celebrated his dream coming true. All of this and so much more is the reason I am running the Boston Marathon this year. This is the reason I am committing to training for months beforehand. This is the reason I’m asking for your support in donations.
