THE STORY:

I'll be running my first marathon with the SOMA team on April 17th!!

I was first introduced to Special Olympics in high school when I hosted an athlete named Neil at the games in New Jersey. Seeing first hand the amount of joy, pride, and positive spirits the event brought to him is why I've stayed committed to supporting the organization since. Raising $10,000 for SOMA allows 26 athletes the opportunity to participate in events year round, which is life changing for them.

Briefly about me - I've always enjoyed running but have recently grown a deeper passion for it, especially since living in Boston and spending the summer on Cape Cod. It comes with the opportunity to be outside, meet new people, and see places in different ways. But what I'm most excited about is getting to do something I enjoy, while supporting a cause that has a huge impact on the lives of children and adults with special needs.

So while I'll be preparing physically and mentally for race day, please also help me change the lives of those like Neil who want to be a part of something bigger, by either donating or spreading the word about a great organization. Any positive contribution helps. :)
