THE STORY:

How my marathon journey started –

I started running/ jogging four years ago.  My friend, Suzanne, asked me to run a 5k with her.  I had done 5k’s before but probably walked most of the way.  From then on, she somehow reeled me into joining New York Road Runners.  I found out about 9+1 and here I am now.

Why I want to raise money –

Almost three years have passed since my brother first got sick.  What started as a bout with ulcerative colitis, turned into so much more.  I’m convinced that he is stronger than the average person; but having seen my brother endure the sickness and power through it was heartbreaking - for myself, our family & friends. 

This is the reason I want to crowdrise – (http://www.starlight.org/whoweare/)

Serving more than 60 million children and their families since inception, Starlight is a global children’s charity that improves the life and health of kids and families. Through a continuum of support for children and their families—from the moment of diagnosis through the course of treatment, we offer educational programs that help sick children understand medical procedures, manage their illnesses and develop coping strategies; entertainment programs that boost spirits, reduce the need for pain medication, and provide distraction therapy; technology- and community-based programs that connect isolated, sick youth with their peers; and family events that allow sick children and their families to relax, have fun, and reconnect outside the hospital environment.

So I don’t need your $$$ to run the race, but I would appreciate a donation to the foundation.   Thank you!

5/10/13 Thank you again to everyone who donated in 2012.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to run due to Hurricane Sandy.  Your support has taken me through the San Francisco and NYC Half Marathons this year.  I can't wait to finally finish the NYC Marathon!
