Supporting the local Boston Community
Dr. Miller believes in helping the community. Part of being a person is about helping others. Giving back to the community is something that Dr. Miller is really passionate about.
Dr. Miller’s longtime passion for running, be it for pleasure, in races, or running marathons, brings him great personal fulfillment.
Dr. Miller is very active in his community. He is a long-distance runner and has completed thirty Marathons and has raised money in the past for the Kiwanis Club of Newton. “Raising money for charitable purposes”, he says “is a big incentive not only to running the Boston Marathon, but also to finishing it. Each year when I ran the Boston Marathon for the Kiwanis Club, I raised money for the Blackington Foundation, in memory of past president Charles Blackington”
As Dr. Miller sees it, “Running the Boston Marathon is more than running a race; it’s one of the highlights of my life. In fact” he says, “I compare it to my self – just an average person – playing the World Series”. Running it once is a thrill of a lifetime, but he has been fortunate to run twenty-eight Boston Marathons.
For the last eight years, he has run the Boston Marathon in support of Spectrum for Hope, a charity which raises money for families with multiple autistic children.
This past summer, Dr. Miller ran the Falmouth Road Race, raising money for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. Several years ago, Spectrum for Hope joined up with the Doug Flutie Foundation.
