Inspiration: Letters We Received

Dear Mr. Toole,

I can't believe the 5th BrockTrot is here already! All of the years have gone by so fast. This year I would like to donate $50 to the BrockTrot; I have earned this money by babysitting and doing chores around the house for my Mom, Dad and I've even done a few chores for Matt. This race has meant a lot to me since I was 7, when the first BrockTrot was held, but because my Mom's cousin Maura died of lung cancer recently this year, this race means even more to me and my family. My 13th birthday is two days after the BrockTrot and I am excited to continue to participate in the BrockTrot as a volunteer and a runner, I hope to continue in the BrockTrot Committee's footsteps and do good things for others and their families. Please accept my donation for the BrockTrot this year.

Thanks for your time and effort,
Emily Tibbetts, 2010


Dear Mr. Toole,

I was 5 years old when the first BrockTrot started and now I am ten. A lot has happened to everyone, some good things and some bad things. I think donating money to the doctors in Dana Farber is a huge help so they can find a cure. So we are changing lives and the people who are ill don't even know where the money is coming from. I think Brock would be very proud of you. Please accept my donation of $50.

Your friend,
Matt Tibbetts, 2010


"My family and I all loved the Brock Trot! You and your team did a SPECTACULAR job! Congratulations! Obviously the result of a lot of hard work by committed friends of Brock. I see each year getting bigger and better. Many, many kudos to you for getting our community together for Brock in a way he would surely be proud! How great for Lizzie, Caroline, Cathy and Chris!" ~Jerry, 2006


"This race was a great tribute to a wonderful man, father, husband and person I'm sure. I didn't personally know Brock but reading about him from this website inspired me. Running this race after losing my son last year also inspired me. Thanks for all you did to make my day brighter. His spirit was here today." ~John, 2006


"I want to say what a great race you put on today. I did not know Brock but was amazed at how much love and support he must have had, and still has. This was one of most well organized races I have ever run. From the chip to the photos and especially the volunteers, I was in awe. We are new to the area so the course was beautiful. Brock must have been a great person and I wish I could have met him. Thank you to the Wilkerson family and the friends of Brock for putting on such an amazing event in memory of someone so special." ~ Erica, 2006
