EVENT: 2014 TCS New York City Marathon

EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014

Frank Swaha

THE STORY:

I'm proud to be running the TCS NYC Marathon to help children and adults with disabilities in NE and Central Pennsylvania served by Allied Services. Any size donation will help. Donate $30 in my honor and you'll be eligible to receive a cool moisture-wicking Ryan's Run exercise shirt.

I’m a U.S. Marine from Scranton currently employed by the Department of Justice. I took up running five years ago when I suddenly decided to get healthy. My weight had reached 300lbs and I felt terrible. I had weight loss surgery and immediately began making changes in my life.

My initial goal after losing some weight was to complete a marathon, to prove to myself that I could do it. I did and then I caught the “bug” and fell in love with running. Since running that first marathon – Steamtown – I’ve run three more.

I decided to share my passion for running with others and became a coach through Scranton Running Company and Barrier Breakers. Seeing people improve and meet goals like I did really makes me proud.

I’m inspired and motivated to have the chance to help a great organization like Allied Services. When my mother suffered a stroke she came to Allied Services. I’ve seen the improvements she’s made and the compassionate and caring way she was treated at Allied. It means a lot to me that I can harness my passion for running to help my community. When I’m running in New York City in November, I’ll be carrying Allied’s patients and their families in my heart. 

ABOUT RYAN'S RUN 5
