Danny Shea

As many of you know, just about 2 years ago I lost my dad to Alzheimer?s disease.His passing was a difficult time and left me with a large void that had consumed nearly a decade of my life. To fill this void and help my cope with emotions, I turned to running as an outlet. Running has given me more than I could have imagined. I have developed lifelong friendships and challenged myself to tackle new challenge that once I felt I could never achieve. It has lead me to be better mentally, physically and emotionally. It has also lead me to new adventures like this one. On September 15th, I am luckily to have been chosen to participate in the FIRST Fenway Marathon along with 49 other runners!!! I am so pumped.


My love of running, love of the Red Sox, and the chance to support The Red Sox Foundation lead me to apply. The chance to support many charitable efforts The Red Sox Foundation supports is an immense honor. In particular, their support of the Jimmy Fund hits close to home, having lost my mother to cancer in high school and seeing so many I know suffer through the disease. I am honored to participate in the event, I am asking you to help me to achieve my fundraising goal of $7,500!! Please click here to donate and please share this message.


Thanks to my wife, Lauren and kids, for the unwavering support through this and all my running escapades.
