ORGANIZER: Human Rights Campaign NYC Marathon Team
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Hi! I am extremely excited to be running the NYC marathon this coming November on behalf of HRC. Having the opportunity to run is important to me for a couple of reasons. Those who know me know that I ran in 2010 but had injuries that caused me to withdraw... but you also know that I take pride in running and working out, so going through the training and running the marathon is definitely an unfinished goal. More importantly the people that know me best know that fighting for what's right, and being there for my friends and family is most important.
I am so happy that my partner and I can now marry and get the same benefits as any other couple. I went through a lot of difficult times growing up and trying to find myself but I am finally comfortable with who I am and lucky to have found a great soulmate!
While there have been great strides made recently for the LGBT community, having the chance to raise money and awareness so that others don't have to go though what I went through in the future is what makes me most excited about running this year.
Please support, and I'll do all I can to run our best, and raise as much awareness as possible!
