As many of you know, on Monday April 15th, I will be running in the 123rd Boston Marathon. I have a lot of emotions about this decision already… terrified, excited but most importantly honored to have been chosen by the Last Call Foundation to run as part of their team. All funds raised for my efforts will be donated to a foundation so near and dear to myself, my family and my fellow firefighters throughout the state.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Last Call Foundation, it is an organization which provides funding, education and research to advance the safety needs of the firefighting community. The Last Call Foundation was founded by Kathy Crosby-Bell in honor of her son, fallen firefighter Michael Kennedy, who along with Fire Lieutenant Edward Walsh died battling the nine-alarm fire on March 26, 2014 in Boston’s Back Bay.
To support my fundraising efforts, I will be hosting a fundraising event on Saturday, March 30th at Down The Road Brewery.
We will have food, cool raffles, entertainment and of course…BEER! Our friends at DTR will also be unveiling a special brew in honor of the LCF with a portion of the proceeds benefiting this cause. There will be a suggested donation at the door.
We hope you can make it for a fun night and a great cause. I really appreciate all the support I’ve received so far and look forward to seeing you there!
If you’re unable to make the event but would still like to donate page link is included below.
Any contribution you are able to make helps.
