BENEFITING: American Heart Association
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2014
Thank you for taking the time to visit my page!
This will be my third half marathon, and my second as an American Heart Association Fundraiser. The 2004 Walt Disney World Half Marathon was the first race that I raised funds for the AHA. In 2004 I decided to raise money in honor of my family members who had survived life threatening heart conditions. I've decided that this year my efforts will be dedicated to those who are still fighting heart disease and heart related illnesses, as well as those who are no longer with us.
The American Heart Association strives to inform and impact the public of the risk that unhealthy lifestyles have on one's body and wellness. In my efforts to prepare for this half marathon, I am setting a goal to reach a new personal best time. I cut 28 minutes from my first half marathon (2:12) to my second (1:44), and I am hoping to cut 14 minutes from my current best time (1:30!!!!). I hope that my energies inspire those to live a more active and healthy lifestyle. Wish me luck!
I am striving to raise as much as possible for this valuable cause. I greatly appreciate all the help and support.
