If you knew me as a child, you knew I was not very athletic. I was the nerdy kid who got good grades and read books. So it was a shock to all including myself when I completed my first marathon in March 2012. The athlete in me was born and my passion for running was here to stay! At that moment while crossing the finish line, call it a runner's high I guess, I made a commitment to myself that I would run the NYC marathon because I had to do this race in my hometown!
On November 3rd 2013, I will be running my 2nd marathon and this time I'm making sure I give back. I am committed to raising $3,000 for a great organization called BronxWorks. The money raised will support programs for children and youth in the South Bronx, one of the nation's poorest congressional districts.
It feels great to not only give back, but to help people in the borough I was born and raised in!
Please consider giving a donation... every dollar counts to help the city of the Bronx! And please share the link with others! Last but not least, come and support me on Sunday, November 3rd in any one of the five boroughs! :)
Thank you for your support!
