Dear family and friends

On April 21, 2014 I will finish what i set out to do last year, by completing  the Boston Marathon, this is my 3rd marathon, but this year i have the honor ofrunning it in memory of Martin W. Richard,

Like most people, I do not like asking for money. However, I am happy to do so in this case, because I can't think of no greater cause. After the tragic events of the 2013 Boston Marathon, I can imagine no better way to be a part of the 2014 Boston Marathon than to run in Martin's memory. It's going to be an incredibly emotional day for all of us, 


We established The Martin W. Richard Charitable Foundation  to honor our son Martin's message of peace, a message that went global in the days after he was tragically taken from us while we were all cheering on runners at last year's race.  While the pain of that day will forever be with us, our hope is that this special event becomes a source of strength for our family and a means to make a difference in the world.  The mission of our foundation is “to honor Martin's message of ‘No more hurting people – peace’ by investing in education, athletics and community.”
