THANK YOU SO MUCH for visiting my 2015 Boston Marathon Celebration of Martin and his message of PEACE fundraising page!!!!!
I never could have imagined that I'd get to run Boston. In order to qualify, I'd have to shave off over an hour of my Marathon Time. Eeeek. As fate would have it, Dave McGillivray, Boston Marathon Race Director, invited me to join Team MR8 and run on behalf of young Martin Richard and the amazing foundation that his parents established in his honor.
For those of you who know about my #Run3rd Inspirational Campaign, you can see that I'm taking the next step and actually trying to encourage charitable giving. Education, Athletics & Community make perfect sense!!!
I wore the Boston jersey (photo on right), with a Boston Strong Ribbon, My wife and Childrens names and #Run3rd embroidered, in the days after the 2013 events, to demonstrate my solidarity with the victims, their families, the people of Boston, the peace loving running community & our nation.
With this page, I continue in that spirit and ask you to help me turn my hope and passion into action!!!!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Again, many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Much Love and Respect,
I #Run3rd for YOU!!!
