I’ve always had a bucket list. Like most, my list consists of things I hope to accomplish/see/do before I am too frail to do so. However, for me, creating this list was not a self-serving narcissistic prophecy – it was about crafting a meaningful journey during this sweet, sweet thing we call life. Now more than ever before, I often ask myself, “Am I really living my life to fullest extent possible?” I’ve been very fortunate to be able to check many things off my list, such as surviving law school (and passing the bar), skydiving from 15,000 feet, living in Italy for 2 years (straight out of college & alone), traversing the holy streets of Jerusalem, rescuing my sweet & loyal terrier, Floppy, from the mean streets of Los Angeles – and lastly, landing a great job in one of the greatest of cities in the world: New York.
However, one of the biggest items on my bucket list is running the famed New York City Marathon. With your help, I plan to check that item off on November 2, 2014. I’m beyond humbled. In fact, I am nothing short of lucky to be able to even entertain these pursuits and have the never-ending support of my friends and family throughout the same. I cannot thank you all enough. Having your support gives me the strength, courage & bravery I need to tackle the things I would never even consider without you. However, no amount of bravery on my part even comes close to the determination and courage displayed by the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on a daily basis. Each day, they surmount the challenges of battling cancer and other life threatening diseases with an unparalleled bravery in the face of adversity. I am honored to serve on the Executive Committee of The Eric Trump Foundation (ETF). To date, ETF has donated & pledged over $28 million dollars to St. Jude since 2006. 100% of your donations will go directly to fostering the life-saving research and patient needs at St. Jude. I run this race in honor of every St. Jude child with the hope that, one day, they, too, can cross off everything on their list of dreams.
Thank you so much for your help!
