EVENT DATE: Mar 29, 2014
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is definitely a bucket-list item and doing it for a great cause will make the experience that much more meaningful. As a member of the 2014 Kilimanjaro Dream Team, I have chosen to raise funds for an organization called CARE. This international organization was founded in 1945 and works in 84 countries to defend human dignity and fight global poverty. One of the root causes of poverty is women and girls' lack of control over their lives. But once empowered by education, economic opportunity, and freedom from violence, a woman can be a catalyst for positive change in her own family and in her community.
About me: I am a working mom who never sits down. With a husband, two boys, and a black lab puppy, we have a very active lifestyle. For us, “busy is the new normal” but we consciously take time to savor the moments. I am a Sports Medicine Podiatrist and three years ago I founded my own company, STRIDE. When I’m not with my family or at my office, you will find me out running. Running is my passion and my “me time”. I have completed 5 marathons and am getting close to a qualifying time for one of my other lifetime bucket-list items, running the Boston Marathon.
Please visit www.care.org for more info. I invite you to join me in supporting this outstanding organization.
Huge thanks and sincere appreciation for your support,
