Ashley Place's Fundraiser:

Pencils of Promise NYC Marathon 2016

Ashley Place

THE STORY:

My first 5k was the Brandon Killingsworth 5k in Melbourne, FL the fall of 2007. My colleagues at Eau Gallie High School ran in memory of Brandon, so I signed up. I had never run. I had not trained. But I finished.

As I signed up for more 5ks, and 10ks, and half marathons, I still didn't consider myself a "real" runner. But here I am....running my first marathon. The marathon of all marathons.

Every year on the first Sunday in November, I wake up, get a chai tea, open all the windows in the house, and snuggle under a blanket to watch the NYC marathon. This year I get the privilege of being one of the thousands to hear Sinatra at the start line.

Though I'd never met Brandon Killingsworth, I owe him a huge hug and debt of gratitude. His race started me on a journey that I never would have known existed. Education brought me here. Being a teacher brought me here. So I think it's best if I give back to where I started and who I am. 

Please join me on my continuing journey by donating to Pencils of Promise. Education opens doors. And minds. And hearts. 

Thank you for investing in the future and my dream.

--Ashley
