Thank you everyone for your consideration in donating to this amazing cause!
I have been running races my whole life and it has always been my dream to run the Boston Marathon. As you may or may not know I recently moved into the big city with my bestfriends, graduated college, and started my career as a registered nurse so what better time than now to accomplish this goal!
