Raised by 49 people in 12 months
On April 17th, 2017, I will be running the Boston Marathon as a part of the Boston Fire Department team. I am honored to be running for The Tommy Quinn Brain Tumor Research Fund, a cause near and dear to my heart.

The family and friends of Thomas William Quinn have established a memorial scholarship which is presented to a dependent student of a Boston Fire Department employee. The purpose of the scholarship is to honor Tommy and help keep his memory strong.

Tommy exhibited many strong qualities that helped him overcome the many obstacles he encountered during his short life. He always took a challenge head on, keeping a positive attitude and always with a sense of humor. Tommy was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of six and battled through; blindness, chemotherapy and weekly visits to Dana Farber Jimmy Fund for eight years. He did not complain; he simply fought on.
Tommy Quinn (TQ) was loved by all and fought his diagnosis with courageous faith that a cure would be found. That led his father, Tom, a Boston firefighter with Ladder 23 and Engine 24, to start running the Boston Marathon along with other firefighters to raise awareness for Brain Tumor Research.

The Tommy Quinn Brain Tumor Research Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute has grown over the years and a true testament of his legacy. Tommy’s untimely death, at the young age of fourteen, changed our lives forever. The Quinn family is determined to honor Tommy’s legacy by honoring a student of a Boston Firefighter who possesses the qualities that our Tommy had; perseverance, integrity, a leader among his peers and service oriented.

Through this scholarship we want everyone to remember TQ's love of family and friends, his bright smile, his contagious laughter and his zest for life! #TQstrong
