2023 Marathon: Anne Blackney for Best Buddies

Above: A Southborough resident is using the 2023 Boston Marathon to raise funds for the non-profit Best Buddies.

[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 Anne Blackney is running her first Boston Marathon next week. She is raising funds for Best Buddies.

Blackney shares on her fundraising page:

Anne Blackney for Best Buddies from fundraising page“Best Buddies offers One-to-One Friendship, Integrated Employment, and Leadership Development programs for individuals with and without disabilities. Best Buddies gives people with disabilities a chance to make friends, speak up, be heard, and advocate for themselves and others within their community”.

Your donation will help create more opportunities for enhancing the lives of all the people involved in this wonderful organization AND support my long time dream of running the Boston Marathon!
