While running my first half marathon I realized just how blessed I was to be able to run with my own two legs. Now I am running my first marathon, an incredible feat for the human body, and something that every human should have the opportunity to experience. This is why I am running the 2014 TCS NYC Marathon to support the Amputee Coalition.
Their mission is simple, "To reach out to and empower people affected by limb loss to achieve their full potential through education, support and advocacy, and to promote limb loss prevention."
By raising awareness for the Amputee Coalition's cause I hope to help men, women and children who have suffered from loss to realize their goals are not impossible.
