On November 5, 2017 I will be competing in the New York City Marathon to raise money for Americares. Though I have lived an athletic lifestyle all of my life - competitively swimming, cycling, running in 5ks, and competing in triathlons, this will be my first time completing a marathon. Running in a marathon has always been a lifelong dream of mine, and I am grateful I have been blessed with the opportunity to achieve my dream, while supporting a great cause.
Americares is a non-profit disaster relief and global health organization providing immediate response to emergency medical needs and supporting long-term health care initiatives for people in the United States and around the world. In Connecticut, Americares operates four free clinics in Danbury, Norwalk, Bridgeport, and Stamford.
As a Norwalk resident, I have been fortunate enough to witness firsthand the impact Americares has on residents in my community who cannot afford primary care and medicine. In addition, my mother volunteers at Americares as a translator, so I can undoubtedly say this is a wonderful organization and a great cause to support.
I hope you’ll consider supporting me in my cause. Thank you so much for all of your support and I look forward to seeing some of you November 5th in New York City!
