I’m incredibly honored and excited to run the 128th Boston Marathon to raise money for the Boston Bulldogs Running Club! The Boston Bulldogs Running Club is a co-ed 501(c)3 non-profit established to provide an anonymous and safe community of support for all those adversely affected by addiction - those in recovery, their families and friends, the clinical community and the community at large.
I rediscovered my love for running after my brother Jordan passed away from an overdose in December 2020 at 33 years old, following his courageous 15-year battle with addiction. Jordan and I were extremely close since childhood, and I was looking for an outlet to channel my grief and be alone in my thoughts. I became interested in running the 128th Boston Marathon in Jordan’s memory and set out to find a BAA-approved charity that was specifically focused on providing support to those in recovery and their loved ones. Through my research, I learned about the Boston Bulldogs Running Club and decided to apply for a spot on their Boston Marathon team. I know that their unique approach to promoting wellness and providing a supportive environment for those in recovery and their families would resonate as strongly with Jordan as it does with me, considering how devoted Jordan was to his physical fitness through bodybuilding!
I am deeply grateful for any donation you are willing to make to this worthy cause. I look forward to carrying Jordan’s spirit with me on Marathon Monday, and running on behalf of the many who have struggled with addiction and their families. Thank you for your support!
