THE STORY:

Back in January after deciding I no longer wanted to only be a spectator, admirer, and supporter from the sidelines, I began my training and preparation for my first TCS New York Marathon.  This fall, I am so excited to be officially registered to run in support of Covenant House.  

Running is an extremely personal activity for me.  Running is what clears my head of all the noise. It gives me a challenge to conquer when I feel overwhelmed and almost defeated, grounds me, and then I can take on whatever life throws at me next. It is my therapy and my outlet other than music and it never lets me down in that way. I want to be a part of everyone else's reasons for running, and give back what it gives to me. Running this fall will mean so much more to me knowing that I am doing it not only for myself, but for an extremely important cause.  

If you are unfamiliar, Convenant House is the largest privately-funded agency and advocate of homeless, runaway and throwaway youth in 21 cities across the US, Canada and Central America. They provide food, clothing, emergency shelter, job training, high school educations, legal services, mental and physical health care, counseling, programs for moms and their babies, street outreach, and a national hotline for kids in crisis. They give a voice to those who can't speak up for or protect themselves. The goal is to help homeless youth achieve independence and provide them with all of the tools necessary to get on their feet and feel more confidence and worth than before. Covenant House gives a fair chance to those who may not have had one otherwise and helps lead them to the finish line. 

Upon asking my Mom what she thought of my choice to run for Convenant House this fall, she informed me that she was very familiar with the organization.  Unknowingly, I decided to support the very same charity that my Pop-Pop, (an inspiration in my life both in his selflessness and in his musicianship), had supported for years until he passed.  He used to tell my Mom the important work being done at Covenant House as well as share pictures of those he helped and the personal thank you notes he received for his donations.  

November 6th, 2016, I will cross the finish line of the NY Marathon with pride and the ultimate sense of accomplishment for many reasons.  I will run to continue my Grandfather's legacy, raise funds for Covenant House and those they help, and will have completed my first marathon on behalf of my own personal reasons to run.  

Any little bit of help to reach my $3,000 fundraising goal is extremely appreciated. Covenant House does a really incredible and important thing for the world. I believe now is when we need to support those that spread the good in hopes that the good continues to spread and outweigh the rest. I hope to see you at the finish line, in training, or in support of my cause however you can help spread the word. See you on the other side and much love and thanks!
