This past year my nephew Alex was hit by a car, and miraculously made a full recovery! I believe it was God looking over him and the amazing support from family, friends and extremely generous strangers. This crazy year has changed my whole outlook about life. I saw how everyone worked together to help Alex no matter what it took! I told myself I will always give back too! Thank you!
My fundraiser for my upcoming Spartan Sprint is for Prevent Child Abuse America, founded in 1972, works to ensure the healthy development of children nationwide. The organization promotes that vision through a network of chapters in 50 states and nearly 600 Healthy Families America home visiting sites in 39 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Commonwealth of the Marianas, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Canada. A major organizational focus is to advocate for the existence of a national policy framework and strategy for children and families while promoting evidence-based practices that prevent abuse and neglect from ever occurring.
After seeing the strength of my nephew and everyone who helped, it is a perfect example of me not giving up to finish my race! This is for Alex, my family, friends, strangers, and all the children abused across the the world!
A special thank you to former president Amelia Berube of Kappa Delta Sorority, for her support to help build my fundraiser!
