We are starting up again only this time I am thrilled to have my son Nico run with me for Boston Children's Hospital on TeamJace!!
Little tidbit about Nico, he was 10 years old in 2013 waiting with his mom and brother at the finish line to see his dad complete his first marathon when those tragic events struck. This kid at 10 years old seeing that carnage and still being able to be strong for his mom and brother to get them to safety is something that never leave the minds of my family. Nico struggled with that day for years, still does, but fast forward 8 years to present day and Nico on his news his freshman year at Boston University does not start until next January and this year being a COVID year in which the Boston Marathon is being run in October, he will run strong with me for BCH and TeamJace! #BostonStrong
Running for Boston Children's Hosptial since 2013 has allowed me to see firsthand what an incredible and caring organization BCH is and how tight the community is around the entire staff, patients, families, and the Miles For Miracles Marathon Team.
We are thrilled and blessed to be on TeamJace! Jace Perkins has become a rockstar, mostly from his two amazing parents (Jamie & Melissa) with love and support from his entire family. Jace survived a 25 week birth weighing in 1.6 pounds with a grade 3 brain bleed hemorrhage among many other complications. We will detail all of these during this journey and update everyone while we raise money for the institution that has helped save Jace's life.
Jace is doing quite well now, hitting every bar put in front of him and achieving numerous milestones in regards to learning, speech, attention, and he keeps smashing his goals! Our hero will turn 8 on 12/26/2021!!!! Jace's favorite place to dine is The Cheesecake Factory! We will join him for some pancakes after one of our long runs!
Again, none of this would be possible without the support I get on the home front from my wife Christine and son Christiano who I know will be there in October at the finish line to see Nico and I complete a Boston Marthon together!
Support me, Nico, Jace and support the hospital! Please make a gift today. No gift is too small!
Thank you very much!!
