THE STORY:

We're Mia and Christina - a couple Texas gals now living in Brooklyn who share a love for froyo, frivolous pop songs and the dream of conquering the NYC marathon together this November! Help us reach our goal of raising $6,350 to benefit Back on My Feet, a charity close to our hearts that combats homelessness through the power of running.


To add a little fun we made a list of activities we'll perform in exchange for your support.
