I am so excited to participate in the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon to raise money for Zara's Center! This is my first marathon, and I'm am both thrilled and nervous (quite a spectrum of emotions!) to run in a city so close to my heart to support a great cause.
A bit more about the cause: Zara's Center is a safe-haven for AIDS orphans and vulnerable children in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. Zara's provides daily nourishment, academic enrichment, medical care, work training, recreation, and artistic development to over 125 children in Emganwini Township. The majority of Zara's kids have lost one or both parents to HIV/AIDS. Zara's Center is committed to providing the tools and resources necessary to help children succeed and become their own advocates. To learn more about the Center, visit Zara's website.
I hope you'll support me and this amazing cause on Nov 5!
