Why I am running!

Why am I running?

I have been involved with SMILE Mass in various ways throughout the years and most recently joined its Board of Directors in 2019. I have known co-founder Lotte Diomede since our sons were little and swimming at the Longfellow pool.   Lotte and co-founder Susan Brown started SMILE Mass ten years ago and have accomplished so much for the community living with disabilities, but still have a long way to go.   

This year I am so happy to be running Falmouth with Emma.  Emma is a happy 19-year-old who enjoys school and loves dancing to music.  She likes to spend time outside both on the swing or going for walks.  Baseball is her favorite sport to play, and she can’t wait for September for the miracle league games to start up again. She has fun going for runs and raising money for her favorite charities…like SMILE Mass!

I am running the Falmouth Road Race to support SMILE Mass so that everyone can enjoy a day at the beach, a bike ride with family members, participating in a road race like Falmouth and so many other experiences that many of us take for granted. Your support will help SMILE Mass continue to provide vacation and recreation experiences to all, despite disability.

Thank you for the consideration!

Description

Donate to help the SMILE Mass Falmouth Road Race team raise money to make recreation and vacation accessible to all, despite disability.

Your support will help SMILE Mass continue to expand their programs.  Here are just some of their accomplishments over the past 11 years:

~donated over 140 floating beach wheelchairs to public beaches throughout New England

~created an Equipment Loaner Program that allows families to borrow adapted equipment free of charge for a day, a week, or longer

~opened an accessible beach rental in Truro, MA (Cape Cod) so families can enjoy a beach vacation

~built several accessible playgrounds in metro-west area of Massachusetts

None of this could have been accomplished without support from individuals just like you!

Together we can build a world where everyone belongs despite disability.
