Dear Stepping Strong Marathon team,
We are officially three months away from the 126th Boston Marathon! You must be getting excited and feeling confident and determined as your training mileage increases each week, we are so proud of you!
When we met at the first team meeting, Steven and I promised you that we would be there with you every step of the way through race day. Our team is filled with so many inspiring individuals and stories that brought you into our orbit and we couldn’t be more grateful. This year, while we will not physically be running 26.2 miles with you from Hopkinton to Boston, we are so pleased to announce that our family will be making a $100,000 donation to the 2022 Stepping Strong Marathon Team in honor of you and all of your incredible efforts to support trauma research and care! We are so grateful to each of you, not only for your commitment to running the race, but also to fundraising on behalf of the Stepping Strong Center.
There is so much important and impactful work being done at the Stepping Strong Center, and it is our honor to provide additional funding that will continue to propel the programs forward. We look forward to sharing more details about the center and individuals who benefit from its work at our virtual team meeting on Thursday, February 10 at 6pm EST.
Thank you once again for joining us on this mission and for being a voice of change for trauma survivors like our precious Gillian.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Audrey, Steven, Danielle, Kyle and Gillian
