Boston Marathon fundraising thank you message

   My name is Scott Austin and I am running the Boston Marathon on April 21st. I am also raising money for Boston's Children's Hospital, a very worthy cause. I am doing this because two years ago my 6 year old son was very sick and received life saving treatment and surgery. That was an eye opening experience and I saw first hand just how important these specialty hospitals are.
     My goal was to raise $6000 for the hospital and I am happy to say after 5 months of fundraising, that goal was reached today. I cannot say enough about the wonderful people in this town who stepped up and contributed to this very worthy cause. I would like to publicly thank a few of the many right here, so others in town can know just how charitable our town can be.
