I could not be more excited to run the 2016 Boston Marathon and my first marathon for Dream Big! and want to thank you for considering making a donation to such an amazing cause. I wanted to run for Dream Big! to start to give back for the amazing opportunities I have been given through sports. I can't wait to begin this journey and couldn't do it without your help!
