Thank you for supporting my marathon effort and the programs & services of Wediko Children's Services!

Thank you for visiting my Wediko Marathon Team Fundraising Page!

I am again training to run the Boston Marathon with the Wediko Marathon Team. All of the money I raise will go directly to fund Wediko's School-Based Services. I have been deeply touched by people's generosity and I am moved by the opportunity to put my physical energy behind such an important cause knowing the difference Wediko's services can make in the life of children.

I have worked for Wediko since 2006 and have seen first-hand how Wediko’s services dramatically benefit our clients, allowing them to achieve higher levels of social, emotional and academic mastery. When students are referred to Wediko they usually come with impressive files chronicling sad and turbulent lives that often include academic difficulties, multiple losses, exposure to traumatic events, and learning, psychiatric and/or developmental disabilities. As a result, students and their families often have learned to feel hopeless that things can get better. Wediko, through partnerships with families, students and schools, captures success and restores a sense of competence and hope.

Running the marathon is a tribute to all of the children and families we work with who face seemingly insurmountable challenges. It is an appropriate metaphor that we raise money for this worthwhile cause one step at a time. Please help bring hope into children's lives by supporting Wediko Children's Services

All donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated by the children and families Wediko serves! Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too! Thanks and I will let you know how training goes!
