God has called me to run 13.1 miles with Love Runs for the Detroit Free Press marathon through downtown Detroit & Canada. A couple years ago, they played a video at Northridge stating how Michigan is the 2nd state in the nation for human trafficking. My jaw just dropped in complete & utter shock. I literally couldn't believe this and decided at that point that I wanted to help. Due to family & personal reasons, I was unable to run the past couple years but the passion never really disappeared. It has been on my heart since then & this year, after losing nearly 40+ pounds, I decided it was my time to shine & stand up to fight. What I endure through all my hard work during training and running 13.1 miles on race day is nothing compared to what a victim has to endure, overcome, & cope with through life. I have chosen to stand up and fight against this cause with my Love Runs team to put an end to human trafficking. Please take a moment to consider helping me put an end to this cause & help so many victims. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and love to you all!
"I will make no excuses, but through every obstacle; I will find a way. I will not procrastinate my progress. I will not defer my destiny. I will not waiver when I'm weak. I will not cower when my circumstances take a turn for the worse. Because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I WILL FIGHT!"
