The Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center is committed to providing a home away from home for children and adults with disabilities.
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
Many of you know that I love running and I feel lucky to participate -for the fourth consecutive year- in one of the greatest running events in the world; the Boston Marathon. But what makes this event so much more meaningful is that I am running for others; that I Run for a Reason.
Last year I ran for the Michael Carter Lisnow Center (http://hopkintonrespite.com), a charitable organization that dedicates itself to helping both those of special needs and their care providers. I have run for charity before, but last year was different and I vowed to come back to Boston to run for them again. The Respite Center itself and the people who work there are incredibly inspiring, warm, and caring. The evening before the marathon I spent at the respite center and had met many of its regular visitors. What a truly awesome place! The kindness and passion of the staff and volunteers is unsurpassed and something I have never encountered anywhere else. I appreciate, as I am certain the children will, ANY contributions you make. No contribution is too small and many small amounts will amount to a sizeable one. 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 feel free to forward this to anyone who might want to donate too. Karin
