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.
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.
