Run 4 Steve
We are honored to be named the fundraising recipient of the five-person relay team that will run in honor of Steve Cohen in this year's Vermont City Marathon. Steve was born with Down Syndrome, and received support from Howard Center for many years. In recognition of Steve's life, his family and friends have formed a team, and contributions to their team will be donated to Howard Center.
Steve's mother, Linda Morrow, says she chose Howard Center as a recipient because, "I firmly believe three factors contributed to Steve's full, rich life. One was his indomitable spirit and sense of humor . . . . Another was his 17 years of employment at Healthy Living Market in South Burlington. . . . Last but certainly not least is the Howard Center in Burlington, Vermont, and the many people connected with the agency that supported and loved Steve."
If you would like to make a donation in Steve's memory, please visit our website, www.howardcenter.org. On the donate page, under "Designation," please select Run 4 Steve, and in the tribute section, please enter "In Memory of Steve Cohen."
