Thank you so much for visiting my page. As you probably already know, I have the great pleasure of serving as the Director of Best Buddies Masschusetts. Many of you may also know that I have been extremely fortunate to count my Best Buddy Patrick as one of my friends for almost a decade (pictured above at Fenway)! I'm asking for your support today, because Best Buddies is something that is making a huge difference in the lives of participants like Patrick throughout Massachusetts and we need your help.
We are a non-profit organization that provides social, leadership and employment opportunities to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. There are over 4,600 participants that are served by Best Buddies throughout Massachusetts, and with your help we're hoping to serve even more!
On April 15th, I will be joining 14 other runners who are dedicated to enhancing the lives of our participants by running and raising funds through the 2013 Boston Athletic Association's Boston Marathon Charity Program.
Last year we were able to raise nearly $90,000 and this year we have our sights set even higher. Because of this tremendous support, we were able to hire additional staff and make an even bigger impact on the amazing participants we serve. With your help, we hope to continue this momentum and change the lives of more Massachusetts residents with disabilities.
Every dollar you donate directly and entirely supports our program efforts in Massachusetts! No matter the level of contribution, your support will make a tremendous difference.
Please help us in our efforts to make Massachusetts more inclusive for people of all abilities, one step at a time!
Thank you for your consideration and support!
