Help Amy raise money

For participating in The 2022 ASICS Falmouth Road Race

My Story…

I'm so excited to be running the Falmouth Road Race again this August.  I hope you will join me in supporting Next StepIn the words of Paul Newman, actor and philanthropist, “Children with life-threatening illnesses have many homes. Teens and young adults have none. Next Step fills this vacuum by providing life changing opportunities to young people.”  

Three core pieces of Next Step programming include Community, Music, and Mentorship.  You can probably guess that given the love of music in my family I was excited to learn that Next Step has its own ‘Song Studio’ where all participants write and record their own music, share their own story with the world in the way they want to be heard.  One Next Step youth said of the process: “Recording my song gave me a sense of possibility – that I am more than this disease and have a future to work for.”  What more could we want for these young adults?


Next Step empowers teens and young adults living with with life-threatening diseases to successfully transition from childhood to adulthood and into an adult healthcare system, creating their brightest future. This is done by providing extensive support and teaching essential life skills to help our participants to effectively manage their illness, maintain optimum emotional health, and succeed in their professional career. To accomplish these goals, the Next Step programs address the physical, emotional and developmental issues unique to these young adults through our community, music, and mentorship program and moving our young people closer to, "I believe in me."
