"As I cross each miler marker, I look down and read the names dedicated to that mile on my jersey. Some names I know, while others I don't, but it doesn't matter, each person on the shirt has fought harder and longer than I ever have. Whatever pain I may experience, it goes away when I think of what people have experienced and endured in battling cancer or these childhood diseases. I know this cannot bring back the people who have passed or ease the pain of those still fighting, but our thoughts, support and donations show the respect we must have for each of them.."
- Michael O'Neill
These are the charities for which we're raising funds and donating all proceeds in the name of State Trooper Mark Charbonnier.
The Neely Foundation
The Neely House:
"Ultimately we look forward to a day when a cure for cancer makes The Neely House a safe haven for others in need. Until that happens, we'll keep trying to make a difference-one guest at a time."
- Cam & Scott Neely
The Neely House opened June 27, 1997 and began helping families on August 25, 1997. The House was the dream of the Neely brothers, Scott and Cam, as a way to honor the memory of their parents who lost their battles with cancer. The Neely House provides a home away from home for families who have been stricken with the disease and are seeking medical attention at the New England Medical Center. The Neely House provides food, lodging and more importantly a support system for families fighting cancer. The Neely House has been expanded to 14,500 square feet to try and meet the over whelming demand for its use.

Step One, is a program, which helps parents to recognize and understand their child's particular development needs, and suggests ways to help their child grow. Children who are helped by this organization may have been born premature. They may have feeding, vision or hearing problems or they may have been born with a disability or health condition that affects their development such as Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida or Cerebral Palsy. This is just a sample of the children who are helped by this generous organization.
