THE STORY:


Over the past four years, there have been so many changes for me personally and professionally and I have learned to find peace, strength and confidence through running. I started running 6 years ago and I never dreamed I could do this and I am so excited to prepare for my 4th marathon and so inspired to run the 121st Boston Marathon. The training is grueling, hard (especially because I’m behind schedule) and I am hoping mother-nature will be on my side but I promise no matter what to push forward and remain focused and dedicated to achieving this goal. 


For a second year in a row, I'm so proud to my fundraising efforts support the amazing work being done by Bowdoin Street Healthy Champions Program. Healthy Champions is an anti-obesity education, fitness and community-building program serving primarily low-income children ages 7-14 with BMI ≥ 85%-95% from the surrounding Bowdoin/Geneva neighborhood.  Under supervision of a case manager/fitness coach and our nutritionist, the Healthy Champions learn about the importance of nutrition and healthy foods, food preparation/food access in their neighborhood, and fitness and healthy lifestyles. They plan, implement and sustain their own plot in the local community garden each year, in turn learning important marketing lessons by selling their produce at the Bowdoin/Geneva Farmers’ Market (held on-site at Bowdoin Street Health Center) each week during the growing season.  Perhaps most importantly, Healthy Champions serve as “ambassadors of health” to their families and peers in the community, sharing their knowledge about health and wellness while developing a sense of confidence in their ability to effect healthy changes in themselves and in the wider community. With the recent completion of an on-site Wellness Center at Bowdoin Street Health Center, youth involved in the Healthy Champions program will now be able to engage in additional wellness opportunities, ranging from cooking classes to fitness programming. I am honored to be part of such a prestigious organization. 


I have always known the AMAZING care, love and best in class BIDMC provides as one of the best academic medical centers in the city of Boston but over the past few months personally watching it from the other side makes this year all that more special. I am fortunate to participate with 50+ dynamic individuals representing TEAM BIDMC.  The sense of unity and team spirit this group has provided is like nothing I have ever experienced. I’ve shared some memories I have created along the way in my photo gallery. 


I’m asking to help me raise $7,500.00 to support my fundraising goal. As we all know it truly takes a village to get anywhere in life. Whether its $5.00 or $500.00, it truly will make a difference!  I’m calling on all of you as my champions to help me cross that finish line on April 17, 2017! 


And for those of you that know me, I always leave you with one of my favorite quotes however this year, I would like to honor a special woman I knew only for a short time but meant so much to me. She will be smiling over us everyday forward.
