Shannon's 2013 Boston Marathon Page
THANK YOU for visiting my fundraising page!!!
I am so excited to have the opportunity to run my 3rd Boston Marathon!!! Running for the Boston Bruins Foundation is extra special for me this year. As some of you know, I recently lost two people who are very near & dear to my heart, both due to cancer. Sean, a close friend of mine, was probably Boston’s #1 Bruins fan so I am honored to take on this challenge to keep his spirit alive. Kathy was the mother of my best friend and she was the strongest most successful, accomplished female I know. I grew up, learning from her, that you can make anything happen if you put your heart & soul into it!!!
Think running in the cold is tough? Try battling cancer…always with a brave smile on your face. Sean & Kathy put up a good fight for a long time. They did not believe in quitting and I know they won’t let me quit. I can hear Sean now, “Come on kiddo, go run…with all heart.” Sean & Kathy will be in my thoughts all the way to the finish line as I know they will be watching over me.
Every little donation helps and is much appreciated, so please help me reach my goal!!! The next few months will be a lot of hard work training, but it will all be worth it on April 15th! I look forward to seeing many of you along the course that day!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
