This fall, I will run two marathons to support my new employer The Providence Plan (http://provplan.org) as it celebrates 20 years of working to improve the economic and social well-being of Providence, its residents, and its neighborhoods.
The Providence Plan operates programs focused on children's well-being, workforce development, and the capacity of Rhode Island's nonprofit sector, including the organization I work for, YouthBuild Providence (http://www.youthbuildprov.org/).
Along with my relocation to Rhode Island and new position teaching high school math and science, I have developed a new ambition: to run my first marathon on October 14th in Newport, RI (and another one on November 18th in Philadelphia).
If you find this a worthy cause, you can help by making a donation to The Providence Plan, sharing this page on social media, or just sending encouragement (and reminders to train). Your support is welcomed and appreciated!
