THE STORY:


I never thought I would run Marathon.... Whenever somebody asked me about that my respose was: " No I will never do it, this is not for me, half marathon is max I can do." I kept repeating this for many years up till last week. I don't know what happened that changed my mind but the moment I was given the oportunity to join (GRS) Grassroot Soccer team to run 2017 NYC Marathon and fundriase money, I didn't hesitate at all. This was an impulse and I just knew I need to do it. And for the first time I actually believed I can do it. The feeling was amazing, cannot describe it but I am sure most of the runners know this excitement whenever they choose to participate in the next running event. So here I am, five and half months before the Start Day and 2nd day of my training... I am really excited and a bit scared, but I know I can do it. I will run My First Marathon!  


And what makes it even more exciting is that I can support this amazing organization which can make a real difference and change lives of many young people. So please help me to continue my fundraising efforts by contributing to GRS and ultimately making a difference in a young person's life. Thank you very much for all your support and your contrubutions!


About the organisation:


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!
