THE STORY:

Hi family and friends! I hope this finds you all well! This November I will be running the TCS New York City Marathon as a charity runner for CitySquash, and hope you'll be able to help me reach my fundraising goals. I first began volunteering as a coach and tutor at CitySquash in the summer of 2006, and couldn't be more proud to commemorate all the great work they've done and lives they've impacted in the past decade by running on their behalf. Two of the most important and enduring parts of my life have been school and sports, and I strongly support CitySquash's mission to use athletics as a vehicle to provide high-level educational opportunities to those who otherwise wouldn't have access. So if I've met you in class, been on your team, or both (or neither), I would immensely appreciate any amount of support as I shuffle my way through the 5 boroughs in service of an organization that's been very close to my heart for the past decade. Thank you and GO TEAM CITYSQUASH (and Wildcats, Panthers, Bears, and Terriers!) (#toomanyschools)
