Completing the New York City Marathon has always been a dream of mine. I watched a family friend (that's you, Mrs. Cary!) complete a half marathon the year she turned 50 and I was nearly brought to tears with inspiration. A smart, strong, wife, mother and nurse, still testing her limits at age 50. It was incredible. It was powerful.
So this year, as I get ready to hit an age milestone of my own, I'm also training to meet one of the biggest goals I've ever set. 5 boroughs. 26.2 miles. My first marathon ever. Read about here: www.meghanbb.com/marathon
I'll be fundraising and running for Team Free Arts, an art-based program that mentors underserved children and teens in NYC. As a designer and art-school graduate, art has always played an important role in my life. As a mother and a New Yorker, this cause is particulary dear to my heart.
Free Arts NYC provides underserved children and families with a unique combination of educational arts and mentoring programs that help them to foster the self-confidence and resiliency needed to realize their fullest potential.
At Free Arts NYC our philosophy is: “There are no mistakes in art!” Our programs aren’t about creating a masterpiece or becoming the world’s best artist. They’re about kids and families enjoying the process of expressing themselves creatively as they build resilience.
