Thank you for checking out my fundraising page. I am so exciting to be running the 2017 New York City Marathon with the Back on My Feet NYC team!
New York City Marathon has always been THE marathon I wanted to run but never thought I would get my chance (especially since I said I wasn't running another marathon....ever!, but we all know how that goes!)
Insert Back on My Feet and an amazing sorority siter! I swear some people just know how to make dreams come true; it's truly her gift!
If you have never heard of Back on My Feet, let me tell you about the organization.
Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. How cool is that? To use running to transform lives? Well, isn't that what running has done for me? I have always felt, and tried to pass on my love for running by encouranging and inspiring others to be better than they were yesterday. To show others that we all start somewhere and even though I may never "win" a race, I am worth the time to train to finish the race.
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." Hebrews 12:1
Would you consider making a donation to Back on My Feet to enable them to continue with their awesome mission and to help me reach my goal?
Thank you friends, for your support, your love and most importantly your prayers as I train for and run the New York City Marathon in November!
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
