[The Boston Marathon always includes a pack of runners from our town. Between now and Patriots Day, I’m featuring stories of resident runners donning bibs for a cause]
Southborough’s Peng Yin is running to raise funds for the Michael Lisnow Respite Center. Her fundraising page explains:
the respite center provides love, care and support for disabled children, adults and their families. They do great work for a cause that’s very close to my heart.
The charity website touts:
Now in our 25th year, The Michael Lisnow Respite Center is a place that provides emotional and physical support for individuals with disabilities and their families.
Located in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, the Center serves hundreds of families. We can not do this without the generous support of many, and the inspiration given to us by the life and memory of Michael Carter Lisnow.
