Stuff About Me:

Last month, I was presented with an unbelievable opportunity. Actually, my dream: to run the Boston Marathon.

Read on...

Did your parents ever tell you to eat your food because there are starving children in Africa? Well, there really are. 

Anyone can help. 
I decided to help. 
You can help. 

There are 4 million orphans in Ethiopia. There is no one to tuck them in at night, read them a story, or give them a hug when they fall and scrape their knee.  

This is my plea to you today.

As a breast cancer survivor, most of you know that my faith and my running is what got me through that difficult time. 

I’ve been given the opportunity to run the Boston Marathon and bring awareness to a nonprofit organization, The Hall Steps Foundation, founded by Ryan and Sarah Hall in 2009. The founders are elite runners who made it their life work to fight poverty through better health. 

The Hall Steps Foundation delivers funds to help provide access to clean water, shelter and education.

If everyone reading this gives a minimum of $10, this would not only fuel a new purpose for my running, but also give children opportunities they would never have living in Ethiopia (a 3rd world country). 

If you can commit to $10 a month for 12 months, this would put a child through school and provide 2 meals for a child in southern Ethiopia.

And guess what? 100% of the proceeds I raise will go toward this cause!

Here’s your opportunity to help a child in need:

1. By supporting a child through this fundraiser

2. By keeping these kids in your thoughts and prayers

3. By sharing this cause

Thank you and God bless you for your generosity.
