I have made the exciting decision to run the ING New York City Marathon on behalf of the American Lung Association. Not only has it been a longtime personal goal of mine to run in and (hopefully) complete this marathon, but I could not be prouder to represent such a fantastic organization.

This journey is not only important to me because of the opportunity to support the American Lung Association and their mission to fight for air for the many affected by lung disease, but it also holds profound personal meaning as well. I was born over 9 weeks premature with severely underdeveloped lungs, and was hospitalized for nearly 2 months. I was later diagnosed with mild asthma as a teenager. Luckily, I have been able to achieve many of my athletic goals thanks to the knowledge and tools to control my symptoms. Lung related health issues have also affected many of my close friends and relatives. I have seen firsthand how much lung disease can impact not only the individual, but also their loved ones. Unfortunately, my grandmother died of emphysema related complications at a rather young age.

I sincerely appreciate your interest and support in helping me and the American Lung Association through this journey! Please help me achieve my goal of raising $5000 for the ALA and crossing the finish line of the NYC Marathon. Every little bit counts and is GREATLY appreciated!

Thank You!
