Spotlight on Liz Martino
Liz and her children, Matthew and Caroline, lost the rock of their family in December 2020 when Chris died suddenly and unexpectedly. To lose Chris at such a young age when they were in the midst of an exciting and happy life together was absolutely devastating. Chris was incomparably fun, fiercely loyal, and infallibly competent.
Since his death, Liz says they have been lucky to find The Children’s Room, an important lifeline for people suffering immeasurable grief. Grief counseling can be prohibitively expensive, and having this resource in a time of crisis can truly be lifesaving.
“I’ve decided to run the 125th Boston Marathon to raise money for The Children’s Room, a cause now very close to my heart. If you can, please consider donating in memory of Chris, and to support others suffering the unending grief of losing a cherished loved one. And make sure to look for me at the marathon — I’ll be wearing the shirt saying ‘I run for Chris.’ “
The Children’s Room is fortunate to have an additional team member who is running virtually from PA. Read why Andy Breisch is running to support us.
