My name is Harris Stolzenberg, and I am Michael’s brother. Michael’s contagious smile lights up the room and his unyielding determination always inspires me to push my boundaries. This year, I hope to honor him and those wounded in Boston Marathon bombings by taking on a new challenge. Like Michael, I am also an avid sports player. I play lacrosse and football and have received national recognition for my accomplishments on the field. But I have never run a marathon, so I will need your help!
My plan is to spend next year training so I can run in the 2014 Boston Marathon. Please consider sponsoring me in my journey to help the new amputees of the Boston bombing take their first steps towards independence and improved quality of life. Throughout the year, you can follow my progress as I work towards my goal. Training for a marathon will not be easy but with your support, I know I can cross the finish line. And when I do, it will have been more than the run of an individual; it will be a run for my brother and for everyone injured in the Boston Marathon attacks.
