BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
It's always been a goal of mine to complete a half marathon (and eventually a full marathon) and I made the decision to accomplish this goal in 2016. I didn't want to run a half marathon solely to complete my goal and check it off my "bucket list". As many of you know, I am always looking into different ways of giving back and raising money for those in need and I wanted to do just that. In selecting which Half Marathon I wanted to complete, I took into consideration the charities the money would benefit and ultimately decided that the Rock 'N Roll Half Marathon was the best choice for me. I have registered to run the Rock 'N Roll Half Marathon as a St. Jude Hero, meaning I will be running to raise money and awareness for their organization. I have committed to raising a minimum of $500 but would like to raise much more. I know with the support of my friends and family this goal is more than possible. I appreciate everyone's support and donations!
