With your help I'll be running the New York Marathon for Team BRAKING AIDS and Housing Works of New York!
This past July I ran the San Francisco Marathon, holding individuals in my heart for each of the 26 miles. The strength my friends and family have shown in this life pushed me forward. I left the experience wanting to open my heart up even more and get out and run another one.
I couldn't be more excited to be running this one for Housing Works. Housing Works has been working since 1990 to 'end the dual crises of homelessness and AIDS through relentless advocacy, the provision of lifesaving services, and entrepreneurial businesses' that sustain their efforts.
