Hi everyone! My name is Cory, and I am a 26-year old former athlete and amateur runner devoted to getting [back] into the best shape of my life. In thirteen weeks from now, I'll be running 13.1 miles in honor of students in developing countries around the world.
My passion for education began when I was a little girl. From raising caterpillars turned to monarch butterflies and laughing in the dirt of our second grade garden at Manzanita Elementary School, to learning to solve the alphanumeric puzzles that were algebraic equations in Mrs. Abbott's eighth grade math class, I was blessed by giving teachers and rich, joyful experiences in our local public school district. Though my dream of being a teacher evolved toward educating adults in the technology industry, my sister's never faltered. She's now a high school science teacher in Southern California.
This summer, I'll be running thirteen miles so that students in Guatemala, in Ghana and in Laos might have the chance to laugh under the roof of a classroom. Help me to fund the teachers, the classrooms, and the resources that can make this possible by making a donation... be it $1, $13 or $100, even a single pencil can give a child promise. Thank you for all of your support!
