Hi guys! As you all may know when it comes to anything competitive sign me up! But when sports and supporting life-changing fundraisers collide it motivates me even more to push myself. I'm part of crowdrise because on November 1st I'll be running my first full marathon, the TCS NYC Marathon. I'll be running with Team CJ, a foundation that supports SIDS research. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of a seemingly healthy baby less than a year old. Although I do not have children, my family has been deeply impacted by SIDS. My sophomore year of college my brother and sister-in-law gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl. 23 days later Paisley was taken from my brother and sister-in-law without any warning or explanation. As this is not my story to completely and fully divulge, just a glimpse of having a child taken away from you can be imagined, but not understood entirely the journey ahead that a newly married couple would face. Running this marathon with this team allows me to actively support and give back to a foundation that works daily to support families who have lived this nightmare.
So here's where your part comes in! Although I'm not going to ask you to run the 26.2 miles with me I am going to ask you to support me through this journey and get involvd with a truly incredible foundation! My goal is $2,500, but every little bit counts! Help me meet my goal!
