Parvina Zuhurova Glidewell
Being raised in Tajikistan and going through the civil war, while I was still a child, I have come to realize how lucky I am now to raise my own children in a peaceful USA, where I don’t have to worry about, food, education or health care. So many children around the world live in war places where they are not so lucky, they have to struggle just to live and survive every day. They run wars or poverty, just like drowned Syrian 3 years old Aylan. Coming from Tajikistan I have seen it all: children with no food, shoes in cold winters or warm clothing.
I am Running in New York City Marathon for a CHARITY. This gives me the opportunity to contribute personally and through my other generous family members and friends, give back to suffering children. I choose UNICEF, because I researched and found out that UNICEF gives most money/help directly to the children. UNICEF helps those children without access to clean water, war refugees, and all those children around the world who need our help.
Why did I choose to run? Couple years ago, when I felt my children were old enough to go to bathroom without me wiping their bottom, I took on running. I always thought I would of been great at some sort of sports have I started young, but unfortunately didn’t have chance as a child/young adult. Fortunately, it is still not too late and I took on running. I am not great runner, but I have completed few marathons and few half marathons. I am probably the slowest runner you would know. However, I love running and I feel like running is a gift that I am giving to my self over and over, 4-5 days per week. Going to NYC marathon is my Big Dream come true. I tried few times to win the Lottery to go NYC marathon but I wasn’t lucky. Fortunately, I have been given another chance by supporting the organization of my choice. I could run the marathon if I raise enough money. I am part of running group for UNICEF. I like to make difference to children’s life and I am so blessed to have this oppotunity. If my running makes difference let it run let it run let it run!
