THE STORY:

My name is Sam, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to run for the HER team for the San Francisco marathon. San Francisco is going to be my fourth marathon, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to take on yet another 26.2 with a larger, and more meaningful goal than simply making it to the finish line.

I am an avid runner, and I grew up running thousands of miles with my mom, who has spent a large portion of her life devoted to improving the lives of members of Colorado town. She has taught me so many lessons on our many long runs. One message that she consistently instilled in my brain was that a high quality education is an empowering and essential aspect of life. Second, that educating girls is the most efficient and powerful way to change the world.

I believe that educational equity, both in the United States and abroad is a fundamental human right. For this reason, I have devoted a large amount of time to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to achieve a high quality education. I am currently a Teach for America corps member, and I teach at a high school in North Philadelphia. However, I also wanted to do something to contribute to this belief on a global scale, and that is when I heard that I could fundraise for HER for the marathon.

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to empower the girls that benefit from HER! I have a fundraising goal of at least $1000, but I hope to exceed that goal by at least $500. and I am excited to connect with the team, and run the countless miles needed to reach that 26.2 mile mark!
