I wouldn't be a true New Yorker if I didn't run the New York Marathon at some point, right? This November I will be running another 26.2 miles, but this time it will be in memory of someone who impacted my life in exponential ways. Beth was someone who touched every single person she met, managing to always see the "wonderful" in others even when they didn't happen to see it themselves. My goal is to raise $3000 in efforts to support the organization that Beth held so close to her heart. Free Arts NYC provides underserved children with a combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential. Every step along the way will be for this meaningful organization and for one of the most inspiring and creative people I had the pleasure of knowing. *She also was the founder of the term "it's lit," which I think is pretty inspiring in itself. :) Any and all donations are so greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance and many more details to come!
