Proceeds from this tournament will benefit the Michael Lisnow Respite Center. All monies raised will be used to support the many programs offered by the Respite Center, including adult daycare, afterschool care, summer camp, and weekend overnights. These programs provide support and social experiences for disabled individuals and simultaneously grant relief and respite for the family members who devote themselves to caring for their loved ones. We are committed to surpassing our fundraising goals to not only ensure these programs are maintained for current families but to also allow for greater participation.
Celebrate the winners, and more importantly, raising money for a great cause with an after party at Barrett's Alehouse across the street.

When & Where
Nicole Floro, Kristen O'Malley, Steph Oliari
Nicole, Kristen, and Steph will be running the 117th Boston Marathon for the Michael Lisnow Respite Center on April 15, 2013.
The Michael Lisnow Respite Center is a remarkable organization that provides emotional support for individuals with disabilities and their families. Since joining in their cause, we have been continually impressed and awed by the mission of the Center and the dedication of the volunteers. Therefore as we train for the finish line, we will also be fundraising for all the individuals that find solace at the Respite Center. Seeing the joy on these individuals’ faces and their appreciation for our efforts is our motivation to keep running and to keep fundraising.
