Caleb Daniloff's Fundraising Page

Hi, and thanks for visiting my fundraising page!

For families struggling with the long-term challenges of a disabled child, life can feel like a marathon, with no finish line in sight, and certainly none of the glory. The care and worry is constant, and the medical appointments and procedures can become overwhelming. The divorce rate among parents is 87 percent.

This year, I'm running the Boston Marathon on behalf of the Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center in Hopkinton, Mass. The center provides relief for the caregivers of developmentally disabled kids and adults by offering day, evening, overnight and weekend care, as well as work training and educational outreach. It's only facility in the country that serves clients from infancy through adulthood.

The center is named after Michael Carter Lisnow, who was born 16 weeks premature and weighed but a pound. Suffering cerebral palsy and blindness, Michael was given a 10 percent chance for survival, and faced multiple surgeries and relentless care. Yet lived for 10 years. His vibrant personality inspired the creation of the center while he was still alive. Today, his mother, Sharon, is co-director and has run the marathon herself six times in her son's memory.The center, a stone's throw from the race's starting line, serves more than 200 families.

Any donation amount is greatly appreciated, and 100% goes to MCLRC. A $75 contribution, for example, will cover overnight respite care for one child.

Donating through this website is simple, fast and secure, and the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Many thanks in advance for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too.

Best wishes,

Caleb
