Over the course of nine months leading up the 2018 Boston Marathon, I went from having never run a mile in my life to running 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston. I'm overwhelmed by the support I received and the impact we were able to make as a team to help youth in foster care who don't have the same privalege that we enjoy everyday.
In 2019, I know I can run faster and make a bigger impact! I appreciate your financial and emotional support as well as taking the time to learn more about Silver Lining Mentoring and sharing this page. Nothing significant is achieved alone and together we can make a real difference for youth who desparately need it!

We provide long term one-to-one mentoring and life skills development for young people who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect. Our volunteer mentors are often the only adults in our youth’s lives who are not paid to spend time with them.
