Encountering homelessness in the Big Apple on a daily basis, I am excited to have the opportunity to help fellow New Yorkers get back on their feet through running!
I am pledging to raise $123 per mile for Back on My Feet as I prepare to complete my second New York City Marathon on November 2nd.
Back on My Feet is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.
Having been an athlete all my life, sometimes I forget how much running has helped shape who I am. Staying focused growing up, being able to study in the United States, meeting wonderful people to making it all the way to New York City can all be attributed to what running has taught me. I realize that setting goals for myself that are just outside of my comfort zone initally, then achieving them, makes me believe that anything is possible - starting with my first marathon to competing in the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii...That confidence has helped me in all aspects of my life, and I know it helps those who need to get back on their feet!
For this marathon on November 2nd, I have also set a personal best target to break 3 hours. Can you help me get there by supporting Back on My Feet?
Your support is much appreciated!
Let's go run!
