A Boston Marathon runner raises her hands in victory

I was drawn to Hale years ago while looking for a Boston Marathon charity team to run with. When I started my career in commercial fishing, I never had the financial resources others enjoyed, and it took me decades of hard work to achieve success. I discovered wonderful people at Hale who are creating opportunities for so many young individuals to be successful…to witness the companionship and friendship is very moving. My wife, Mary Susan, and I truly believe our donations are changing the future, creating a beautiful world where compassion and acceptance will prevail.

I’ve experienced how my own family and children are impacted by Hale’s programs and trails and I know my gift makes this possible for our local community and kids all over the Boston area.

There’s always something new to learn. There’s always something new to see. I feel like every time I come to Hale, I end up discovering something new. It’s always an adventure here.
