On August 20th, 2019 my nephew Nicholas entered this world. He was perfect like every other baby except for one thing, his journey to Heaven had already begun. The hours, days, weeks and months that have passed have been extremely difficult on so many people whose lives he touched, especially his parents. Through these difficult times, many amazing people and organizations like The Star Legacy Foundation were there to provide support to them.
I am running to raise money for The Star Legacy Foundation to help families in need and hopefully one day prevent these difficult losses. It will be a lot of training and a long 26.2 miles, but nothing compared to what so many families experience. Please help me in my campaign to support this great organization.
Even though the in-person marathon was canceled, I will train through the summer and run the "Boston" Marathon virtually onSeptember 12th.
Below is some information on The Star Legacy Foundation:
