Stuff About Me:

Hello! I am running in the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon on November 2nd in support of StreetWise Partners.


StreetWise is an organization that helps motivated low-income individuals overcome employment barriers and end the cycles of poverty. I have been a mentor with StreetWise for more than two years now, and working with my mentees to deliver customized one-on-one job skills training, access to professional networks, career coaching and job search assistance has been an incredibly rewarding experience for me.


Running a marathon has been a life-long goal for me. I love to run, and I am very excited to raise money for this incredible organization by having the opportunity to participate in one of the largest marathons in the world.


Please support me in my goal of raising $3,000 for StreetWise Partners by donating any amount that you can via my fundraising page. I’d really appreciate it. Your donation—in any amount—will help StreetWise Partners to continue to help deserving individuals realize their full economic potential and create a better life for themselves and their families.


All donations are tax deductible. You can double the impact of your gift through corporate matching so make sure to ask about your company’s matching gift policy.

Thank you so much for visiting my site and for your support. See you on November 2nd!
