Tocci Service Grant – Thank You

I wanted to extend my gratitude to the company one more time for your generous support and verbal encouragement of my participation in the 2013 Boston Marathon to benefit innovative basic cancer research at Dana Farber. With your help and generous support, I have raised $8,425 so far.  Our team goal is $4.6 Million which equates to a per runner average of $8,400.   Thank you so much for help pushing me across that symbolic threshold as I work toward my $9,000 goal.  The end is in sight!

For those of you who want to track me on marathon day, you can do so through the BAA website.  My race number is 23161.  I start in Wave 3 on Monday at 10:40AM.  I expect to take approximately 5 hours to complete the course.  You can also register online to receive mobile alerts through text message or the free Boston Marathon mobile app as I reach the following course milestones: 10K, Half Marathon, 30K, and the finish.

I am honored to run in run on Monday in honor and in memory of many of our loved ones including but not limited to those whose names you shared with your sponsorship.
