ORGANIZER: Team All
EVENT: Team All Heart 2016
EVENT DATE: Dec 11, 2016
I am so excited to be part of the Neiman Marcus race team this year; full disclosure, I'm only running the half-marathon, so I'm only half crazy!
Few things motivate me as much as fundraising for a great cause, and this gave me a fantastic platform to support our All Heart Campaign, while also supporting an amazing local charity....not to mention I am publicly committed to staying healthy & fit as we enter the holiday retail crazy season!
The All Heart Campaign funds supports disaster relief, as well as provides financial assistance to fellow associates when a crisis occurs. Most recently, All Heart made a sizeable donation to support the families of those Dallas Police Officers lost in the shooting downtown. I am so proud to work for an organization like Neiman's that is as committed to supporting their associates & their communities.
SafeHaven of Tarrant County is committed to providing victims of domestic violence a way out of their current situations, by making sure they are aware of available resources & by educating the community about domestic violence. I am truly honored to have the chance to raise funds to support a local organization like this one.
I'm not a runner by nature, but I have completed two half-marathons before...one more successfully than the other. I typically enjoy Pure Barre 4-5 times a week and the occastional 'fun run', so I'm looking forward to challenging myself through training for this race.
Thank you so much cheering me on by supporting these 2 great causes! If you're in Dallas, come watch us race!
