Hi guys! I'm so excited to be running the 2018 NYC Marathon to raise money for Project AWARE, an amazing organization that has been working to protect the ocean for over 25 years!
For those that know me, me environmental engagement is - and has always been - a huge part of my life. I was raised by an endangered species fish bioligist and a natural resource conservationist, so it is literally in my DNA! And now I have made my career working with sustainable investments.
Ocean conservation is such an important issue that there isn't enough public awareness around. The health of ocean ecosystems is imperative for the climate, for biodiversity, for the livelihoods of the billlion people depending on them - just to name a few reasons! Project AWARE's work to tackle the issues of marine debris (Did you know that by 2025 more than 250 million tons of plastic are estimated to make its way into our oceans??) and to protect over-exploited species of sharks and rays deserves our attention and support!
Please support me on my journey to prepare for the biggest run of my life, and to support this organization and cause. Thank you so much!
