The Michael Lisnow Respite Center is a place the provides emotional and physical support for persons with disabilties and their families.
Many of you already know I will be running the 2013 Boston Marathon, which is a huge dream of mine. I have been lucky enough to have been selected as part of EMC's Team.
In doing this I will be fundraising for the Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center, an EMC-sponsored charitable organization. The center provides a multitude of programs such as weekend camps, to after school programs, to adult day programs and employment support for persons with disabilities.
I hope that by helping to fundraise and bring awareness to the center, they will be able to expand their efforts and that others will follow suit in other areas. Family support is one of many items that have suffered large budget cuts. Requests for their services have never been greater.
The money that I raise (through your generous tax-deductible donations) contributes 100% to scholarships supporting families who are unable to cover the costs associated with assisted care.
I have been very fortunate in life to have been given a healthy body. With this healthy body I will run the 26.2 miles and will raise money to help those less fortunate.
