I am running on behalf of the New York Road Runners association's philanthropy Team for Kids. They work on behalf of children, fighting for their right to lead active, healthy lives through athletics. I am also running in the spirit of love, representing my two children, Gevon and Tiyarah who inspire me daily to face my fears, doubts, and insecurities. Going into my training I was about 45 lbs overweight and depressed. I am facing my weaknesses head on in a fight for personal freedom and realization, in the name of self-love. I thank you in advance for supporting this cause. Know that with every mile I run, I run honored by the privilege to represent you in New York City on November 3rd.
