The Michael Lisnow Respite Center near Boston provides emotional and physical support for people with disabilities and their families.
My name is Nikki Mills and I am extremely fortunate to have been selected by my company, EMC, to run as part of the 'Run EMC' team with 19 colleagues from around the world for the Boston Marathon on April, 15th 2013.
This will be my first marathon and I am humbled to be running for such a great cause in this prestigious event. Though I am not directly affected I have seen the wonderful work the respite center provides. In early April I will have an opportunity to visit the Center and see firsthand what a difference every donation makes.
Recently the center shared their new holiday edition video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjt1pn5obSo
Please take a minute to see the impact that your support has. 100% of the money I raise goes to the center to cover costs associated with assisted care. I am planning to raise $4,000 (£2,460).
