THE STORY:

I have participated in 1 full marathon, 4 half marathons, and 2 ten-milers.  The primary motivation for running these races?  Me.  They empowered me and gave me the competitive outlet I had been looking for since the end of my soccer career.


In 2018, I will be running for a different reason.  


On July 21, 2017, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.  The news rattled our entire family.  We had just lost my dad 8 months prior (November 2016); her diagnosis made us feel like our family may be ill-fated.


On Sept 21, 2017, mom went into Magee Women's Hospital for a Bilateral Mastectomy.  The week of Thanksgiving she will begin the first of 8 rounds of chemotherapy followed by radiation treatments.


I've given 12 inches of my hair to the American Cancer Society and now I would like to give 26.2 miles and $2,500.


I am running this year, not only for my mom, but for everyone who has been affected by Cancer.


Please support my efforts by making a donation to my page.  Thank you!
