The Respite Center is a place that provides emotional and physical support for individuals with disabilities.
About 2 years ago I met my personal trainer, Danielle, through a charitable fundraiser. She was raising money for The Respite Center and offering free personal training to those who donated. She was running the 2011 Boston Marathon.
I went home with the faces of those kids in my mind, and I knew I wanted to help. I needed to find a way to help her raise money for the kids. Days went by and I finally went back to the gym and contacted Danielle and sent a check with my donation. Since that day, I decided to challenge myself physically and mentally. I made a commitment to my health. Danielle encouraged me that I too could run the Boston Marathon and represent The Respite Center someday.
2013 is my year to run 26.2 miles and raise money for The Respite Center. I am excited to be a part of this amazing journey. Now its my turn to give back to my community and to help those in need.
