Welcome to Crowdrise! May the Votes be ever in your favor :)

If you're in the neighborhood to bring PURE JOY to a very deserving child's life... A $20 donation will provide a birthday celebration and cake for one of our 25 students- an experience they have NEVER HAD in their life. Can you imagine never getting to celebrate your special day and not ever eating a piece of cake in your entire life? Well, either can us, so we want to change that for our extremely hard working students!

Donate $20 to provide the once in a lifetime memory for one of our students, and we'll provide you a picture of the event- something you can cherish forever as well :)

Cheers and Happy Crowdrising,
Megan + Imagine Scholar Team

Stuff About Me:

Hey, everyone!

I'm Melisa! I am on my way to medical school in a couple of years (weee!), and in the meantime, I'm working on a degree in Neuroscience.

I began running this very year with the interval method, as in, walk one minute, then run for another, for a half hour. I say this because I really did start as a true beginner just months ago. Well, things were going pretty well! I thought about it and I figured I could manage a half marathon this June. At the time of this writing, it hasn't yet happened, but it will! Training has gone so great, in fact, I dared to DREAM THE IMPOSSIBLE (ha)- that I could possibly, maybe, perhaps, actually run a marathon.

So, here I am. All signed up for the Disney marathon in January 2013, which will take place one year to the day after I started running.

A note about my charity: I was initally going to raise money for hospice research, but I had a new development in my life. I'm going to Thailand this summer for a medical internship! This offers a rare opportunity to bring something personal to the issue of human trafficking, which is a shockingly prevalent global and local problem I've been passionate about for a long time.

Please follow my blog to see my training so far, learn a little about me, see pictures of Thailand, and get some facts about human trafficking.
