Got my new running shoes!
September 16, 2016
I am just a passionate person who takes pride in what I do and LOVE to help others. I began running consistently 7 years ago when I completed my first Half-Marathon through an organization that helps young girls develop life skills through fun, engaging lessons and conversation-based running games. Since then, I have completed 5 more half-marathons.
I had joined Team Catholic Charities for the NYC Marathon in 2012, and unfortunately was struck by a car which left me unable to run. I underwent physical therapy for various months and just last year was able to complete the Brooklyn Half Marathon, the longest distance since my accident.
I am looking forward to join Team Catholic Charities, who has a longstanding tradition of putting others FIRST and treating them with the dignity that they deserve. This year funds raised from the marathon will directly benefit the St. Nicholas Project which provides items of necessity, such as clothing and blankets to those in need especially during the winter season. I hope that you will consider donating and help us accomplish our goals this year. Know that you will all be remembered especially in my prayers.
I got married last November and I am excited to not only join Team Catholic Charities to go for the 26.2 mile stretch, but also my husband Evan who will be running his first Marathon.
