EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2014
This year when I decided to return to school to become a registered nurse I embarked on a journey that has pushed me to step outside my comfort zone and has been beyond rewarding. Once, again I am pushing my limits as I lace up to train for a worthy cause. With 65 days till the race I joined Connecticut Children’s fundraising team and will be running my first ever ½ marathon Saturday, October 11th.
Funds raised will allow Connecticut Children’s to invest in the resources, technology and state-of-the-art equipment that define the exceptional care at CCMC. This summer I was privileged to be a part of the CCMC experience during my nursing clinical and was inspired by each and every child & family - so if you won't do it for me do it for the kids!
Any help big or small would be greatly appreciated as I continue to my goal of taking on 13.1 miles and my goal to raise $500 for Connecticut Children’s!
