Dierks Bentley’s Wife, Cassidy, Raises More Than $22K for Charity in Today’s Boston Marathon

Dierks Bentley’s wife, Cassidy, is running the Boston Marathon today (April 17) to raise awareness and money for Safe Haven Family Shelter of Nashville, a non-profit organization that provides shelter to homeless families.

Cassidy’s Crowdrise.com page, where you can make a donation, has already raised more than $22,000 for Safe Haven.

Cassidy shared a lengthy post on Crowdrise.com about how important running has been to her since moving to Nashville 11 years ago, saying, in part: “It’s hard to overestimate how important running has been to me in the last decade. It helped me transition through so many life changes and adjustments, most of all to being a parent. Its given me time to myself that I need but don’t often get. It’s been both a meditative exercise and an escape, a way to be more present in my life and also a way to just zone out from it all when I needed to. I owe a lot to running.”

Yesterday (April 16) Dierks posted a pic on his Instagram account of himself and his kids decked out in “Wife Runs” t-shirts with the caption: “Here we go @cassrunsboston17! Your @bostonmarathon pit crew is ready to cheer you on! number one fans. CRUSH IT #beboston”
