In April of 2012 I tied the laces of my Asics running shoes and toed the starting line of my first half marathon. The 13.1 mile journey took me across the finish line of the Inaugural Hollywood Half Marathon. Since that time I’ve crossed many finish lines including the LA Marathon (2013-2015). I started running because I lost over 130 + pounds and I wanted to participate in something that would motivate me to stay active. Thus, running half marathons/marathons became a hobby. Every time I sprint across the finish line, it is a celebration of my hard work and dedication.
This year I wanted to find a more meaningful purpose for my running. I heard about “Cottonwood Runners” and immediately wanted to take part. I have attended Cottonwood Church on a regular basis for about three years or so, but my involvement did not extend beyond Saturday night service. I love that Cottonwood Runners raise money for “Grateful Hearts.” In a world filled with so much pain and destruction, it’s great to have the opportunity to contribute a tiny piece of love to someone in need. The minimum goal each runner is required to raise is $200, buuuuut I want to raise as much money as possible for this cause. I would love and appreciate your donations because Kaliyah Cares! =D ----> Donate to Grateful Hearts! XoXo
