My name is Matt Pierson and I am running the 2019 Boston Marathon to raise money for One Summit, an incredible non-profit that helps better the lives of pediatric cancer patients.
One Summit is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to build resilience in kids battling cancer through experiential learning and mentorship with Navy SEALs, storytelling and community engagement.
Each year, One Summit's Climb for Courage and Climb Higher Boston programs provide over 50 pediatric cancer patients and siblings with the additional source of strength and support they need to continue in their fight.
During my participation in the New York City Climb for Courage and Climb Higher events in November 2018, the children's indominable spirit and positive outlook on life, in the face of true adversity, had a marked impact on me. These children deserve every advantage in life, especially during their treatment. One Summit offers this by empowering each child by building upon his or her already-impressive mental strength.
I ask you to please donate to this cause and enable One Summit's support of these amazing children.
