I am so excited to share that I have been chosen to run the 2019 Boston Marathon for Team Framingham! On Marathon Monday I will be representing the two schools I teach at, Potter Road and Dunning Elementary! I went to my first Boston Marathon in 2013 and ever since I have hoped to run this race. I am so thankful for this opportunity!
I will be raising money for Jeff's Place. Jeff’s Place provides comprehensive bereavement support services for both children aged 3-19 and their families.
I believe we all know someone who has suffered a great loss. When I first heard about Jeff's place, I thought of my mom, who lost her sister when she was in high school. I thought of a student I have in class who lost a parent. I thought of friends and cousins who have lost a parent or sibling at a young age. It is never easy to lose someone but Jeff's place does an amazing job supporting these families in very difficult times. They have served over 550 individuals from the MetroWest area and currently have 51 families in their groups, with 56 caregivers and 86 children.
My goal is to raise $4,000 to aid in their support for these families. Please consider donating to help me reach my goal for Jeff's place!
