Hello Team Super Miles, welcome to the next adventure of SuperMiles.
Miles and I have teamed up to run the Boston Marathon 2019. We applied and have been given a bib for Boston Children's Hospital team aptly named "Miles of Miracles".
We hope you can all support our efforts to raise funds for research and ancillary services provided to all patients of Boston Children's Hospital.
We have set our fundraising goal at $20,000. To achieve this goal would be SUPER !
Miles is our inspiration for this effort! Brooke, Andrew, Libby, and Miles have so lovingly shared their story with us these past 18 months. There has been many a time when we have laughed, cried, and then cheered! The Supermiles Team has been a great support to them and they have been a true inspiration to us all!
Many others and Miles have benefited from all the friends and family before us that paid it forward to support research of challenging diseases that affect many children. We can pay it forward too! Let's remember at this time the cherished gifts of organ donors and their families.
One simple way of doing this is to remind people of the importance of registering as an organ donor or to consider registering yourself if you have not already done so.
Here are some thoughts about how you too can join in on the next adventure of Super Miles!
Most importantly cheer us on! While a big part of this is achieving our fund raising goal, we know that whatever you can contribute to the success of our team comes directly from your hearts as a supporter of Miles! If all you can do at this time is be a fan and support our page by keeping track of progress and sending encouragement, that is appreciated and valuable. You are already valuable members of our team and we can't wait to show the Team Green Super Power on marathon day in the city that Miles loves!
If you are able to contribute financially here are some more details, and we cannot thank you enough! To be able to give back in such a speacial way to an organization that has given so much to our family is inspiring to say the least!

Here are some other creative ways to help us reach our goal:
- Ask five or ten of your friends to support our cause and help them make a donation
- Put out a collection jar at your work place or a gathering you have and ask friends to drop in some change.
- Have a bottle drive in your neighborhood and get a matching donor to double your efforts!
- Start a fundraising event with your friends and see how much you can raise.
-If you work in a place that has matching funds remember to apply for those matching funds.
- There are 26.2 miles in a marathon you can pick a miles and support that mile!
We are confident that all is us together can meet and surpass this goal! Let's show Miles and the team at Boston Children's what family and close friends can do when we set our minds to it!
Keep your eye on my fundraising page as Miles and I will post updates! We cannot do this without you so please join in! I will be busytraining hard for the next several months so I can run a strong race! I will cross the finish line with a smiles on my face for Super Miles and with such appreciation for all the Super Miles Team.
Come join us on April 15,2019, at the finish line, Miles and I will be there!
The completion of this marathon will also be close to another important milestone that we celebrate and that is Miles' 2 year anniversary of his diagnosis date. Being able to celbreate his fight and courage is just another moment of pride and thankfulness for us all.
