Spring 2018, I will be running the Boston Marathon! I am living and working in London, but will return home for this very special event and my first marathon. While I train in London, my efforts will also be focussed on raising support and money for an organization that has been a wonderful support to many Boston area families, including my own, The Children’s Room in Arlington, Massachusetts.
My family and I learned about TCR 13 years ago after my Uncle James Farrell unexpectedly passed away at the age of 46. My younger cousins, Joe and Isabelle and Aunt Martha turned to TCR for support and help with their grief after losing their father and husband. The Children's Room became a haven for my cousins and aunt; a place where they could begin to cope and experience their grief with people who had gone through similar losses. My family and I so appreciate the services provided to children and their parents by The Children's Room.
As a family, we have supported this great organization and spread the word to others in grief. This connection with TCR and the marathon, is my way to thank and provide needed finances to TCR for empowering my cousins, aunt and the many others during such challenging times. Please help me give back to The Children's Room and accomplish a life goal I've had - to run the Boston Marathon!
