BENEFITING: ALLIED SERVICES FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: ALLIED SERVICES FOUNDATION
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 WNEP's Ryan's Run exercise shirt.
As a nurse for the past 35 years,I have always had a passion for caring for others. I am thrilled to be able to continue my love of improving people’s lives on a different platform as part of WNEP's Ryan’s Run 8.
I am honored for the chance to help Allied Services make an even bigger impact on children and adults with disabilities across Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania. I fell in love with running after completing my first half marathon in 2011 in Hershey. To date, I've completed 11 half marathons over the past 6 years including all four Scranton half marathons.
I had the pleasure to run my last 2 half marathons with my son Matt Madden. He is the one who really encouraged me to take my love of the sport to the next level by participation in this fall’s TCS New York City Marathon. It will be first full marathon.
I am also big on the outdoors ! Our area has so many beautiful recreation spots. I enjoy to hike, bike or just walk on the various trails in Northeastern PA.
Although the marathon in the Big Apple will be my next challenge, I am proud to say my latest accomplishment was becoming a certified scuba diver in August. I was able to complete 14 dives in the Caribbean which included descending down to a ship wreck.
I am ecstatic and honored to be taking part in the TCS New York City Marathon. It is a 26.2 mile journey I'll be running alongside my son Matt. As a mom, that opportunity means the world! But the greatest victory in this entire journey is able to help change the lives of children and adults who are served by Allied Services.
