My friends and I love to run! We run 10-12 miles a week and run in surrounding area 5k’s. It has been our dream to one day run in the NY Marathon and/or the Boston Marathon. We love the crowds cheering the on the runners at the finish line. That is why we are all so moved and feel such sadness for the family of Martin Richard, the 8 year old boy killed at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15th. Martin was with his family, his Dad who is a runner, his Mom who underwent brain surgery after injuries sustained that day, his little sister who lost a leg resulting in injuries sustained that day and his little brother, who by the grace of God was not hurt. They were simply cheering on the runners (most of them friends) as a right of passage marking the signs of Spring and warmer weather. This is a family who is constantly giving to others. They now need help and gifts from strangers.
Having said this, my friends and I simply want to help in some small way. We are having a 3.1 mile spontaneous fun run/walk in honor of Martin Richard and his family. 100% of the profits will go directly to the Martin Richard family to help with medical bills, wheel chairs, and anything possible to help make their suffering a little easier. Their lives will never be the same again. Please come out and support this great cause. The price is $20.00 per runner/walker, which includes a T-shirt. We must have your sizes and registration on or before Friday, May 10th to guarantee shirt availability. (Sign up will be available day of race, but cannot guarantee shirt).
