Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page!

TEAM MR8 will be running its inaugural Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014 and I am honored to be running with them.  Martin Richard and his family were cheering on the 2013 Boston Marathon finishers when the tragic events of that day forever changed the Richard Family, Boston and our world.  Martin was only 8 years old. 

The Richard Family established the Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation to honor Martin's message of "No more hurting people - peace."  I am in profound awe of this family.  They have experienced such monumental loss, but hope that this event becomes a source of strength and a means to make a difference in the world.  The mission of the Foundation is to invest in education, athletics and community and to ensure that every investment it makes conveys Martin's message of peace.   

I have not run more than 10 miles in years but this is not about my running skill, or lack thereof. This mission is about participating in something really beautiful and amazing.  I am just a fortunate messenger.  I often speak to the miracles in my life (Jordan 11, Alex 8 and Tyler 6) about peace and making the world a better place.  I am so thankful to share this inspirational adventure with them, to show them that goodness will prevail and to encourage them to always finish strong.   

It's a privilege to reach out to you and ask for you to share in this opportunity to spread optimism and peace.  

Thank you for your support, kind thoughts and generosity!

PEACE!

Jo Lysko
