My Fundraising Page
Apr 08, 2013

Teams are made up of individuals. Without them, there is no team.


I ran the 2011 Boston Marathon with Team In Training (TNT) and with help from people like you, I raised $4,166.00. During the 2012 season I helped the team by giving out water and cheering on runners. I am honored and thrilled to be training for the 2013 Boston Marathon with TNT.


TNT is unlike any other group I've ever been apart of. This chapter is made up of roughly 150 runners with a dedicated crew of coaches, and volunteers. TNT is also made up of average people, from different backgrounds, of all ages, and certainly all shapes, sizes and speeds. Our common bond is a strong desire to help those affected by Leukemia and Lymphoma. We have a mission to help find cures and more effective treatments for blood cancers.


I am running in memory of my cousin Sean Seely and my uncle Mike Seely. Sean lost his fight to this disease in September 2010 at 45 years old. Sadly he left behind his ever supportive and loving wife, as well as his two children. He was an incredibly happy and fun loving person. He touched many lives.


I am so excited and honored to be running for my family, for my friends, and for my 27th birthday. Marathon Monday is one of my favorite days to be in Boston. This is going to be another amazing experience and I invite you to be a part of this cause. Please make a donation to support my participation in Team In Training and help advance LLS's mission.



What does fundraising accomplish?


  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.

  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.

  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.

  • A donation of $500 could provide patient aid to THREE patients with Leukemia or a related cancer for a year.

Why run the Boston Marathon?

  • Marathon Monday is my favorite day of the year. Party in the streets, crazy runners, Sox play early and a Celtics game or Bruins game (although not so much this year) to end the day

  • An excuse to wear sweatpants and nap as much as possible through the winter

  • The only time one can feel guilt free to have CUPCAKES with GUINNESS (or whichever adult beverage) post-marathon on race day

  • Plus I get a medal, a cool aluminum foil jacket,

  • I can say I ran behind Olympians which I did but just hours and hours behind them

  • Most importantly I run because I can and for those who cannot:

In Memory of -

Sean Seely (cousin), Mike Seely (uncle), JoAnn Rogers (neighbor)


In Honor of -

Mary Seely (aunt), Matt Massery (friend), Sean Reaves (college friend), Mable Reaves, Janet Reaves, Allison Gilgun (TNT Friend), Manny Ortiz (TNT friend)




As of April 8, 2013:

-Completed the All Women and One Lucky Man 1/2 in Newburyport Sunday November 4th

Also - huge shout out to Jane Seely, Sean Seely's wife. Between our efforts with TNT we have raised $16,423 in Sean's memory. Jane ran the Disney 1/2 Marathon and ROCKED IT! I am so proud of her!



Thank you for your support!
