Run 4 Martin Richard's Family

$14,201 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 133 people in 77 months

 

I can not believe what happened in Boston on Monday - the mental image I have of the 8 year old boy waiting and watching for his family friends to come through the finish line and suddenly perishing in this senseless bombing is too much to handle. 

 

I need to do something about it.

 

So I have set up a donation page - please help if you can - any amount - even $1 a mile for the 13.1 miles I will run on Saturday will make a statement to this family that love still exists - and our American values that celebrate family, respect, freedom and perseverance will eventually overcome all.

I have decided to run the Runapalooza 1/2 marathon on Saturday April 20th in Asbury Parkl NJ in support of this family and would like to ask you to help me raise funds for the Richard family, his dad finished the race but lost his son, his sister lost a limb and his mom has serious injuries.

 

I will go 13.1 miles, if you can donate just $1 or $5 or even $20 per mile you can help me help these wonderful people.  The picture of the young man is below.

My friend Danielle Miranda and I made Boston strong lanyards when the bombing happened. We have sold them over the past few years and have made donations to people who have been affected during this horrible event. This pack we wanted to have it go to Martin Richards. Our hearts break for him and his family. I want to make a note that $160.00 is from Hallmark Health as they bought these lanyards for their staff and wanted to be part of this donation.

Recently I was a mento for the CCFA Philly chapter training for a half marathon when the tragedy at the Boston Marathon occured. Our hearts were broken that day but our spirits were lifted by the strength of families like yours. God speed and god bless to all of you. Love from your CCFA Team Philly family!

I pray that the Martin family gets through this horrible occurrence. Richard was an angel that God needed in Heaven. God bless the Martin family and give them the strength they need to get through this.
