THE STORY:

This year I am accomplishing one of my big goals and bucket list items, I am running the New York City Marathon. I have wanted to run this race for quite sometime and this is the year that I chose to accomplish my goal. My passion for running started in college but I did not develop a enjoyment for running races until I moved around after college and began to run on a regular basis.  I started to develop a consistency and would set a running goal for myself after I finished my workday.

After traveling after college and moving to California, my joy and love for running continued to increase. I ran my first half marathon last year and successfully finished with a huge smile on my face, I was ready to keep on running. For me personally, running means self-awareness, it makes me feel alive and gives me the ability to take on more challenges both internally and externally. There is a certain joy that comes to my life when I start my run and begin to see the sun rise every morning. I am confident that I will be able to run my first full marathon in a very special city as well as raise money for a cause that is very dear to my heart.

I am fundraising money for Grassroot which is a non-profit cause that I have followed, volunteered and been passionate about since graduating college. I had the opportunity to volunteer in Africa and work with Grassroot Soccer. It is an adolescent health organization that uses the power of soccer to educate, inspire, and mobilize young people to lead healthier lives and be agents for change in their communities.

This year Grass Roots is hoping to raise $150,000 to support its life-saving health education and empowerment programs in Africa and beyond. Every $15 provides another young person with a fun, interactive, and safe space to learn about critical health issues, including HIV.

My goal is to raise $3,000 by November 6, 2016. Please join me in brining an end to the HIV epidemic by starting with the young people who have the POWER to end it!

Unitl November,

Katelynn
