Hi everyone! I'm running the Jazz Half Marathon on October 31, 2015 to benefit the LaNasa-Greco Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital, which treats over 1,100 kids per year, the most in Louisiana than all other centers combined.
So....this is my first race! After years of dance training, several injuries, and countless mental setbacks, I began running as a way to decompress, relieve stress, and remain active. I never had any desire to run competitively, but if ever there were a worthy cause, this is it! Running this half marathon and raising money for this program is a goal I've set for myself, and I know I can get there with your help. Hey, maybe I'll even wear a costume if I meet my goal! It is Halloween, after all. Don't you wanna see me as a zombie chasing you down St. Charles at 8 AM?
I have known many people affected by cancer, and several kids who have all benefitted from the wonderful care at Children's Hospital. I'm so thankful and proud that I have an opportunity to give back and run in their honor.
