Running has become a passion and therapy for me to overcome symptoms of PTSD caused by multiple overseas deployments during my military service.
I run to keep fit, ovecome my PTSD and anxiety, and to give back to those who have greater needs than I do.
I am running the 2020 Boston Marathon for the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton.
The mission of John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club in Newton is to enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
The money raised will go to support kids like Liam. Liam was bossy with those younger than him and unwilling to try anything new though he regularily participated in his favorite programs. The staff worked closely with Liam to help him become thoughtful, inquisitive, and a team player.
