Help Me Raise Money for the Special Olympics!

I am proud to be a volunteer coach for the Special Olympics MA (SOMA). The newly formed Sandwich Track & Field Team is training hard for the big Cape Track & Field Meet at Barnstable High School on May 20. I am fundraising for the Special Olympics as I train for the 2017 Falmouth Road Race. All of the money raised goes directly to the Special Olympics athletes' participation. These dedicated children, teenagers, and young adults train hard and compete in sports year-round. Donations in any amount are appreciated. Thank you for your consideration and support!

Learn more about my story and participation in the Falmouth Road Race.
