Congratulations to our Gloucester Residents who just ran the 125th Boston Marathon

The 125th Boston Marathon is in the books and we really wanted to take a moment to congratulate some Gloucester residents who ran this year. Congratulations to Jamie Marshall and Nadina and Justine Wilk! No doubt there are more runners in our community to congratulate, so please share with us if you or a loved one ran this year. Please read more to learn about Jamie Marshall and Team Speed of Light and the Light Foundation and Nadina and Justine Wilk who ran for Team End ALZ and the MA/NH Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.

Nadina and Justine Wilk (a dynamic duo and Mother/Daughter team) ran this year on the official course as well as last year on a self designed course around Gloucester….both times to raise a significant amount of money for Team End ALZ and for the Alzheimer’s Association MA/NH Chapter. With the words “Running for Nonie” helping them each step of the way, Nadina and Justine ran in the beautiful memory of Nadina’s mother and Justine’s Nonie who suffered from the horrible disease. You can still support them by following this link to their official GivenGain page HERE.

We’re baaaack!!! Never did I think these words would be spoken, but here we are!!  This past year has been the most challenging for every single one of us.  Although we were not able to run Boston in 2020, we did, however, raise $40K to help the fight to end Alzheimers!! We couldn’t have done this without the enormous support from all of you.  This cause is extremely near and dear to our hearts as we watched my loving Mom, and Justine’s Nonie, suffer with this horrible disease.  We just know that together we can help to find a cure and give our children a world without Alzheimers.  
We have proudly joined Team End ALZ once again and will run Boston on October 11, 2021.  Please help us to reach our goal – your support means more than you will ever know.  LETS DO THIS!!!!!!!!    Much love, Nadina & Justine XO

Jamie Marshall also ran this year as part of Team Speed of Light for the Matt Light Foundation. The Light Foundation’s charity athletes run the famed Boston Marathon to bring awareness to the work of the Light Foundation. To date, they have raised more than $400,000 for our youth leadership programs. Jamie ran alongside Danica Patrick….who is known for speed on the race track and now also along the marathon route. You can still support Jamie and the Light Foundation on Jamie’s official GivenGain page HERE

Hey 26.2 – I’m coming for you in October!  That’s right, I’m taking part in the 125th Boston Marathon to raise money for the Light Foundation.  As many of you know, I serve as an active Board member for the Light Foundation, which was founded by former NFL player Matt Light.  The funds raised will help enhance the life changing programing that continues to inspire and transform the future of so many youth year after year.

The Boston Marathon is a race like no other!   Beyond its iconic, yet challenging reputation – it brings everyday athletes (like me!), many of whom are connected to extraordinary causes, to the same road as elite, world-class athletes. Together, inspired by strength and courage we run as ONE on the same journey thru the greatest towns on earth!

Please support my personal fundraising project and help me push forward on the road ahead to the finish line!   

Let’s goooooo Team Speed of Light!
