I have been overwhelmed by support since the moment of my diagnosis. The list of people to thank stretches for pages. However, for this particular event, I want to extend a special thank you to four individuals:
Nunia Mafi Silver, coordinator extraordinaire, for her hours of planning and organizing. This would be much less of an event were it not for Nuni.
Phil and Ellen Neches for generously giving us their Nantucket house for the weekend. I wanted somewhere beautiful and FLAT and family-friendly. Thanks to Phil and Ellen, my friends and I get to bring Bender’s Mender to the perfect location.
Danielle O’Dell, who practices the “kindness of strangers.” Without knowing any of us, Danielle not only offered to map out a couple of possible routes; she’s also offered to mark whichever route we choose for the day of the run.
