Welcome To Team Downes

The Team Downes site was created in honor of Patrick and Jessica Downes, who were seriously injured April 15 while standing at the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

My name is Ryan Downes, and Patrick Downes is my cousin. With the blessing of Jess and Patrick’s families, we have launched this site to support their recovery and raise money to help with medical bills.
