Charlie Maher

I joined team MIT STRONG to run the 2014 Boston Marathon to remember Officer Collier and to honor his commitment to serve and protect the MIT community.  Officer Collier was particularly remarkable because of his professionalism as well as his kind and caring demeanor.  Simply put, “He loved us, and we loved him.”
In tribute to Officer Collier, MIT has created the Sean A. Collier Memorial Fund. The funds we raise as team MIT STRONG will be used to establish a Collier Medal which will be awarded to individuals who demonstrate the values and character of Officer Collier.
I am a student in the Sloan EMBA program and an active duty officer in the submarine force of the US Navy.  I have served on four nuclear powered submarines culminating command of the USS Memphis (SSN 691).   I am now serving as the Chief of Staff of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in Newport, RI.  I have run three marathons – most recently the Marine Corps Marathon in Oct 2013.
Please give generously to honor Officer Collier and to commemorate his virtues through the Sean A. Collier Memorial Fund and the Collier Medal.
