On April 21st I will once again be running the Boston Marathon and this will be the 6th year that I will be raising money to support our troops.
All proceeds of this year’s event are going to the Fisher House of Boston.
This year the cause is even more personal for me because of the horrific events that occurred at the Boston Marathon last year. My family including my nieces and nephews were sitting across the street as the brave first responders, many of them military veterans, helped spectators get out of harm’s way and victims get the lifesaving attention that they needed.
I cannot think of a better way to say thank you, then by supporting those troops and veterans who are dealing with problems of their own. The Fisher House of Boston provides a place to stay for family members or loved ones of these hero’s while they are receiving treatment at the VA in West Roxbury.
