I grew up in Newtown and still visit my parents there often. It is such a beautiful place filled with amazing people and a strong sense of community. I am now the mom to a first grader and a preschooler and as such want to do something to support all the wonderful families of young children who lost someone on that tragic day. This is my first race..........ever! I just felt i wanted to do something, however small, to honor those lost. So please wish me luck in supporting this worthwhile cause.
