Melody's #RunForRecovery - Boston Marathon 2017

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!

I am overwhelmed with excitement to be running the 2017 Boston Marathon for Team Brookline!  Spreading awareness about the mental health and substance abuse crisis in our country is something I am so passionate about. It has subjected my family, friends, and patients to so much sadness and struggle. It is clear to me that addiction affects everyone: homeless, rich, young, or old, and we are lacking the resources to combat this terrible disease. 

Brookline Community Mental Health Center is a role model in the kind of resources our families and neighbors so desperately need. The center is a leader in public access to mental health services in the greater Boston community and is welcoming to all, including people with low income and limited access due to insurance coverage. Please visit the center’s website to learn more about the wonderful initiatives it has taken at

I humbly ask for all your support and generosity as I begin my adventure in marathon training and fundraising from now until April 17, 2017. This will be my first marathon. I will have many ups and downs as I train through the brutal Boston winter, but the greater goal of #runningforrecovery will keep my momentum and motivation.  I can’t wait to share my experience with you all every step of the way. 

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!
