Many of you may know that in November I will be running the Philadelphia Full Marathon. However, some of you may not know that I currently care for a 6 year old girl who suffers from 22q syndrome (deletion of the 22nd chromosome). Because of this syndrome, she will never be able to talk. Additionally, she deals with developmental delays, eye problems, and the inability to fully care for herself. She is my inspiration, therefore, I have decided to run the marathon in honor of her and raise money to donate to the foundation. Please help me reach my goal of $1,000 by donating to this wonderful cause.
