Friends, family, and everyone in between!
HEY! Thank you for stopping by! :)
I promised myself that this year I would do a few things. A few of those include...
1. Focus on community and charity.
2. Challenge myself both physically and mentally.
3. Close out year 29 with a half-marathon, kick off year 30 with a full marathon.
So here we are, just two months away from the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon, and I have every intention of running all 13.1 miles... the longest I've ever imagined I'd run (or committed to running).
In order to get there, I'm teaming up with Braking AIDS- raising both funds and awareness for Housing Works, an incredible local group that housed and provided supportive services to thousands of New Yorkers living with HIV or at risk of infection. They have proven relentless advocacy in pursuit of their mission to end the dual crises of AIDS and homelessness, and I will give them everything I have and help raise as much money as I can, while challenging myself to the finish line.
I wanted more than anything to be part of a team that ran with a local charity, and something that I can be personally connected to. As a gay man, I have seen the effect HIV can have on friends I hold close to my heart, acquaintances, and stories of many others just shared through conversation. I strongly believe that this group is doing great things in our community.
I've committed to raising a minimum of $1,500 by race-day.. March 18th, 2018.
Every little bit counts along the way. If you have the ability to share even one dollar, it will not go unnoticed by myself and those benefitting from this group.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and considering to be a part of this with me!
