THEY DID IT! We are so proud of Jason Highland and John M. O’Connor of O’Connor & Highland – Greater Boston Realtors for completing the 122nd Boston Marathon! They faced unbelievably difficult conditions from Hopkinton, MA to downtown Boston, MA that included cold temperatures, heavy wind, and a hard rain that never stopped. It was a test of endurance and they conquered it with a smile!
All of us at Next Step are so grateful for the hard work that John and Jason put in this winter to train for the 26.2 mile race and for raising an astounding $22,564 to support our programs for teens and young adults living with cancer, HIV and rare genetic disorders! It was truly an honor to partner with both of these incredible individuals.
Thank you so much and congratulations John and Jason! Phenomenal job completing the historic race!
We would also like to thank John Hancock for welcoming Next Step back for a 5th year. Ashley Wheeler and the rest of the staff have gone a long way in helping us build a bigger and stronger community for young people that need it. We truly appreciate their partnership in this important work.
