THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family, First off, I would like to thank you for being a part of my journey and sharing this experience with me. I run for all of you. You are my inspiration and motivation to never stop. Running the Nyc marathon has always been a dream of mine and it's soon going to be a reality. I want to share with you some of my special causes and why I'm running. I began running outside in order to relieve stress, and all these years later it became more than a hobby. It's my passion. When I found out I could combine this passion to run with my everyday wanting to help others, I realized my full potential. Last year when I decided to begin this journey, I chose to run for someone dear to me. A close friend, whose son was born with Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. This is an inherited condition that affects many parts of the body, particularly the bone marrow, pancreas, and skeletal system. From a young age, little Ralphie had to battle this. He did so with a smile and presence that made an impression on me. SDS is a very rare condition. For this reason, not many physicians are knowledgeable about it and research for a cure is an ongoing necessity. This became a true inspiration, proving that no matter what happens or how bad things get you have to keep going, and keep fighting. The strength and love his family showed spoke volumes to me and I knew I wanted to help in some way. It was a special moment to me when I figured out I could run and be able to raise funds to help support research for Ralphie's future and finding a cure for those who will be faced with this. My plan is to raise as much money as we can so profits can be donated to the Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Foundation as well as the St. Jude children's research hospital. When learning about how to enter this race and the running for charity option, I came across the Team for Kids charity. I chose this organization to run for because it will help the lives of not only kids today, but future kids as well. Being a product of youth programs my whole life, I gained such wonderful knowledge and love for sports which helped me become the all around athlete I am today. Team for Kids charity supports local youth programs all over the city, so kids like me can have a chance to find their passion for athletics and running which led me to this all these years later. I ask for whatever you can donate towards my causes as I embark on this journey. My passion to help others in all I do is what I strive for everyday, being a Physical Education teacher. You too can be apart of this great accomplishment as we help kids for today as well as tomorrow! Thank you all for being my inspiration! Remember you will be in my heart as I run every mile! love you guys and thank you for believing! See you at the finish line!
