Hi. I am choosing to run the 2017 Boston for The Meb Foundation. Running has been a huge part of my life since middle school. When I was a kid I had a hard time finding the right sport that I felt comfortable with. I got cut from the cheerleading squad; I sat the bench on basketball team and also got cut from the soccer team. As a last chance to find a team, I finally joined the Woman's Cross Country team. Being on this team gave me a solid foundation of what it feels like to be part of an positive and encouraging environment. This also helped my education in school as it set a standard for myself to be successful not only in my sport but also in my studies. In searching for a charity to pledge for the marathon I was looking for similar traits. The Meb Foundation stood out as it provides the tools and resources to lead healthy lifestyles and fosters an environment of support, togetherness and motivation. The organization provides opportunities for children to play and learn positive life skills through involvement in sports.
