On Sunday, November 1st, I will be joining Team Kidney, and 50,000 other runners, in the TCS New York City Marathon. It has always been one of my goals to run a marathon and luckily this year I will have that chance.
In 2004, due to an illness, and in my early 30’s, I learned that I was born with one kidney. Prior to that news I had always had an active and healthy lifestyle and since then I have become even more active and consciously aware of a healthier lifestyle. Since 2004, I have completed multiple 5k races, and by the time of the NYC Marathon, 7 half marathons.
I am honored to be participating with Team Kidney to raise awareness to the prevention and treatment of kidney disease as well as organ donation. Please help me reach my goal of $500 for the National Kidney Foundation.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and encouragement as I will join Team Kidney in taking the fight to the finish line.
