Stuff About Me:

At 35 I decided to do something I've always wanted to do: become a runner.  The first morning I ran 1 mile and the next 2 miles and slowly over the next 6 months I worked my way up to a 10K.  From there I had the running bug and look at me now –The Boston Marathon!!!!  A dream come true to be able to run Boston and at the same time raise money for 11 Free Kick Cancer Celebration, something near and dear to my heart.

11 years ago my best friend Tara and I found out we were pregnant and due at the same time.  Thrilling for friends who had shared almost every moment of their life since we met in 8th grade.  Horribly a few months later Tara was diagnosed with cancer.  Our worlds came crashing down....the unthinkable.

Thankfully Tara made a full recovery and our boys have been best buddies since the day they were born.  6 years ago Tara & I decided to have a "party" to celebrate her 5 years of being cancer free and somehow it turned into not only a GIANT party but a fundraiser which over the last 6 years has raised $140,000 for Dana Farber & the Jimmy Fund.

Please help my dream come true by supporting me and donating to 11 Free!  Thanks!
