On April 28th, I will be running the Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon in support of Best Buddies! As some of you know, this is a cause that is incredibly special to me. For those unfamiliar with the organization, Best Buddies provides life-changing friendships, as well as job and leadership opportunities to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Globally, it impacts almost 1.1 million people, including 54,420 in Tennessee alone.
This year, I will be #racingforinclusion and am currently looking for 26 sponsors (or more!)--one for every mile I run. While I can't promise a first-place finish (Full disclosure: Last year, a mom pushing a stroller outsprinted me to the finish line.), I promise that 100% of all donations will be dedicated to ending the social, physical and economic isolation of the 200 million people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
With your support, individuals with disabilities will be given the greatest gift of all: friendship. I seriously cannot say enough great things about this organization and the capacity for goodness it holds.

Love you all,
