My name is Carmel Ulbrick and I am a native Bay Arean. I am also the Founder & Executive Director of The Image Exchange Project, a global nonprofit providing photography workshops for at-risk youth and connecting kids with a passion for photography all over the world. I was inspired to take up running a few years ago by my husband, Malcolm. Through this practice I have learned so much about my mind, body and the type of lifestyle that's right for me.
I became a part of Crowdrise because it has always been important for me to give back. I volunteered often as a teenager and remember feeling so touched when I was able to see the impact my actions had on those in need.
In 2013, I reached a major milestone: I ran my 1st FULL MARATHON (SF Marathon) and completed 7 Half Marathons! This year, I aim to continue my running practice while incorporating a more philanthropic approach. I am doing this because I already get the 'feel-great-vibes' from running and adding the 'feel-good-while-doing-good-vibes' makes my running high that much sweeter.
I am honored to be running the 2014 NYC Half Marathon on behalf of Friends of the Children NY and look forward to having each step I take contribute to changing the lives of children all over NYC.
Thank you so much for visiting my page and taking the time to donate what you can. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, or stop by the race in March to show your support! With Gratitude,
The Image Exchange Project (Website launching soon!) www.TheImageExchangeProject.org
