BENEFITING: Heather Abbott Foundation
ORGANIZER: Heather Abbott Foundation
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
I am honored to have been selected to be part of the Heather Abbott Foundation 2016 Boston Marathon Team Limb-It-Less. I have been so impressed and touched to see how Heather has taken one of the darkest days of her life and instead of feeling sorry for herself, she immediately thought of how she could help others who have been affected as she was. My niece Kori lost her leg in an accident when she was two years old. Now eight, she has demonstrated the strength and perserverance to live her life to its fullest despite her challenge. My sister Gayle, brother-in-law Scott and Kori were fortunate to meet Heather Abbott and an instant bond began between Heather and Kori. The foundation will be providing Kori with a prosthetic leg that will allow her the freedon of being more physically active than she is now (if that's possible!). Lol. Having seen first hand the challenges facing individuals like Kori and Heather I am honored to have the opportunity to help raise the funding necessary for Heather and her foundation continue the wonderful work they are doing. I'd like to think my contribution will help another person's experience be easier. Please help support me in this adventure!
