Dear Friends and Family,

This is going to be my first marathon and I feel honored to run for Doctors Without Borders – supporting them with the money I raise.
As a child in Germany I heard about MSF for the first time and I remember how amazed I was by the stories of doctors who risked their lives around the world to care for others in medical need. After high school I moved to New York City and I never quite left since then – falling in love with the multicultural energy here that is so exceptional. In 2011, I joined MSF – first as a volunteer and later as an intern. Since moving to New York I knew that I wanted to run the city’s marathon one day but I never felt quite ready for it until now. Through my work with MSF I have gained confidence in following a unique way of action – the belief that great things are possible in this world requiring just simple tools but most of all self-reliance and trustworthiness. MSF workers still risk their lives every day caring for others around the world. Running the NYC marathon might seem minor in comparison but what counts most is our collected self-reliance and trust in each other!

I am dedicating this marathon to my grandparents who have always taught me the importance of collective support. Both my grandmother and my grandfather are critically ill now. As are many Syrians who barely receive any healthcare at this point.

Please support me and Doctors Without Borders so that its employees can continue to provide medical assistance around the world, especially in underserved countries such as Syria where no other humanitarian medical organization besides MSF is operating as of now.

My goal is to raise $1200 and of course finishing the NYC marathon!
Any donation is highly welcomed by MSF and me.

Thank you so much for your support,
