Hi friends and family! Welcome to my marathon fundraising page. Thanks for supporting my journey over the next few months of training leading up to the 2017 New York City Marathon.
I am running on the Project Purple team which an amazing charity that raises money in an effort to find a cure for pancreatic cancer. We can all agree that Cancer is terrible and extra terrible because one of my dearest and best friends was recently diagnosed with this horrible disease in April.
There's so much to say about Mary, but her greatest attribute is her positive attitude and outlook on life. She embraces life with a big smile; challenges and all. She is the sunshine in mine and many of our family & friends lives.
One of Mary's passions is running. She sparked my interest in the sport which has turned into something I now feel passionate about as well. When I ran my first half marathon in November 2015, Mary was my biggest cheerleader. She said, "whatever you do don't stop!" I want her to do the same. Don't stop! Don't give in to cancer!!
I'm running for those fighting today- I'm running for those who can't - I'm running for Mary. Your backing means the world to me and will make each mile that much easier. Thanks so much!
