I'm running my first marathon for Water for People. I decided to join the team when I learned that my mother was invited to the NYC Marathon. My Mom has been running for years and she loves it. She was about to run her first marathon when she was in an accident that injured her knee. She has been recovering ever since. Her name, however, was always on the list for applicants to the NYC Marathon. This year she finally recieved her invitation. I was so proud of her running her first marathon that I decided I had to run it with her.
I work as a video producer for GoPro in San Mateo, CA. I have been working with Water for People for about a year on some video projects and fell in love with their organization. What they do it so powerful. They don't just go in and build wells they create sustainable water supplies for these villages and towns and educate the people on how to maintain. This organiztion is very near and dear to me, so when I decided to run teh NYC marathon I had my fingers crossed that they would be one of the options. I was thrilled and scared all at the same time when I recieved my team invitation. I have never run a marathon before but I am sure I can do this and with your help I can help others along my jounrney.
When I cross the finsih line in November I will be 25 years old, my mother will be 50. I cannot wait to share this experience with her and to give back to an organizaton that truely is doing God's work in the world.
Please help me and my team to reach our goals. I need to fundraise $2,500 by October 1st.
Thank you for your support!!!
