Dear friends and family,
I am running my first race (as a mom!) for two reasons: a good cause and to be a role model to my kiddo, Lillian. Let me tell you a little about both.
First, the cause: I've been volunteering for a nonprofit in Denver-Breakthrough Kent Denver (BKD)-for several years because it's an initiative I feel passionate about, and I want to give back. The mission of BKD is to increase the educational and social opportunities of motivated, under-resourced, urban middle school students through a quality year-round program, and also, to motivate and train talented high school and college students for careers in education.
Second, my kid. As you can see from the photo, Lily (who is almost 9 months old) loves the outdoors and almost crawling, and now I want to take her experience a step further and show her what a healthy lifestyle entails. We will be running together-hopefully the first of many.
Please support a wonderful cause and help 155 Denver Public School students get to Breakthrough this summer!
