Back to Boston for a great cause!
Finally qualifying and running Boston for the first time last year was an awesome experience, but this year will be even better. This time I get to run for a great cause. I'm now training for the 2012 Boston Marathon® as a member of the Wediko Marathon team. Since last year's run I've had the priviledge of connecting with this great team and seeing how committed they are to raising money for children and families struggling with emotional, behavioral, & learning issues.
Running a marathon, even the Boston Marathon, pales in comparison to the challenges so many children and their families will face this year. Wediko Children’s Services provides support and guidance to both staff and students throughout New England. School-based services include clinical and program consultation, individual and family therapy, Side by Side Social Skills groups, and professional development for school staff. The work and support of Wediko makes a real difference in the lives of so many. But like all non-profits, fiscal uncertainty is a reality every year. The Wediko Marathon Team supports these invaluable services.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. You can also send your donation directly to me, at my home address. Checks should be made payable to Wediko Children’s Services. My goal is to raise $6,000 by the end of March. Please consider making a contribution today. All donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by the children and families Wediko serves.
Really appreciate your support -- and please feel free to forward this to anyone else who you think might want to help.
