For both Matt and Meghan, running The 2020 Boston Marathon means so much more than running another race. 2019 was a difficult year, to say the least. With Matt having ACL reconstruction surgery in the spring, breaking his back in the summer and receiving the heartbreaking news of a cancer diagnosis, it seemed as if there was no light at the end of the tunnel. But, this past fall Matt underwent surgery on his left kidney at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, to remove the Renal Cell Carcinoma. Through the next few months, Matt recovered fully and is now cancer free. Although this year was extremely difficult, it made both Meghan and Matt realize that life truly is precious, and it needed to be lived not only fully for ourselves, but for others as well. Meghan and Matt both found The Light Foundation to be a charity they believed in - giving at risk youth better chances at leading healthy lives through scholarships, STEM programs and leadership camps across the country. With your support, you would be aiding these children while also supporting Matt and Meghan’s journey towards the finish line of The 2020 Boston Marathon!
