THE STORY:

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to run my very FIRST marathon with the RAPP team!


Teenage relationships should feel fun and exciting, they should not be scary, demeaning or violent. It is not okay to hit, embarass or hurt one another. 


As a teenager, I remember being excited about my first crush. I remember feeling like I was floating on a cloud to find out that my crush liked me too! 


As a mother, it is important to me to model healthy love to my children.  


As a therapist, I work with clients to teach and in many cases re-train their communication skills.


It is important to me to help support healthy relationships by spreading the word about domestic violence. The statistics are scary and staggering. If you believe in healthy realtionships, love and family the way I do please support my fundraising efforts and help me get to the starting line for this worthy cause. 


If you help me get to the starting line I vow to get to the finish line.


Please check in often for my marathon training updates. You're not going to want to miss this.



Center Against Domestic Violence wrote -

Through the teen Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) we teach teens to identify signs of abuse, what a healthy relationship looks like and how to teach other teens to do the same. Do you remember what it was like to be a teen? Maybe you still are a teen. Regardless, there's little chance telling parents (guardians, teachers, etc.) anything personal when you are 15. The lack of trust in adults is the biggest barrier to helping teens prevent and/or escape from abuse. This is why we emphasize Peer-to-Peer education about teen dating violence.  We want teens empowering teens. We want them to know they are not alone and they can go to their peers when they are in crises.

Our established Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP) is in place at ten high schools citywide. Combined, RAPP teaches 23,000 students a year about healthy, communicative, non-violent relationships and directly counsels over 2,000 teens, individually and in groups. In addition, RAPP coordinators reach out to teachers, parents and community members, to teach warning signs that a teen may be violent or abused.
