THE STORY:

Everyone has their own bucket list. 

The NYC Marathon has been on mine for a long time. And it seemed impossible after a torn ACL in 1996, followed by decade where I never really seemed to recover my strength in my knee.

I worked hard to build that strength back, built a solid foundation, went down a rabbit hole with Born to Run, and then I was running again.  The Marathon still seemed daunting until November of last year, when I ran 18 miles while training for a half marathon.

Now it feels feasible. 

So, after running two half marathons over the past nine months, followed by an unexpected invite from The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) to raise money and run for their team, I am ready to check off this item from my bucket list.

That is the personal goal behind this run.

I am also excited to be raising money and awareness for UNICEF, who continue to do tremendous work for children around the world.

For this race, UNICEF has asked me to raise at least $3,500 from my friends by October 1.

I need your support​. ​I trust you know me well and already know that I always push my own limits - my personal goal is to raise over $20K (or 50% of all current donations to UNICEF) by November 6!

There is no such thing as a small contribution - I want to make a difference for UNICEF, and the fund I am raising money for allows UNICEF to use the dollars raised where they are most needed at that time.

Today, looking at a rapidly changing world around us, that flexibility and wherewithal to help children in need are more important than ever.

Thank you in advance for your generosity to UNICEF. And please come out and cheer me on Sunday, November 6!​
