THE STORY:

 

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

I am joining some great friends in running the 2017 NYC Marathon and I need your help!  I am honored to be a member of the team fundraising for GRASSROOT SOCCER so this organization can continue to serve its incredible mission.

Going into 2016, I recommitted myself to being healthier and decided running was going to be a tactic to get there.  I started with the Couch to 5K program, and by Christmas 2016 I completed numerous 5K events, two Tough Mudders, ran the first half marathon of my life and followed it with a second one just before the year ended.  I had never imagined I would run such a distance, so you can imagine my initial thought when a member of our close-knit running group presented this opportunity to run 26.2 miles in this epic event.  When I learned more about the cause we would be supporting, the desire to do it became increasingly stronger and, with Robyn’s encouragement, I was all-in.

Please consider donating to my fundraising effort.  I sincerely appreciate your commitment to support this organization which is truly making a huge difference for an entire generation.

THE STORY:

Grassroot Soccer (GRS) 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 of change in their communities. Since 2002, GRS has reached over 1.9 million young people with critical health information & life skills programs. 

It only costs $25 to support one young person through GRS's core program and provide them with access to an HIV test. Together, you can help us reach an additional 6,000 adolescents in 2017!
