I am super excited to be running the NYC Half Marathon this upcoming March and being attached to this amazing charity makes it even more special for me. Running this race will be my first half marathon (woohoo!) and doing it with Project Purple is quite an honor! This charity means so much to me as one of my very good friends, Alex Salib lost his fight with Pancreatic Cancer this past summer. Alex was one of those people that had an infectious smile and always a great story to tell about some amazing country he had just returned from. His positive outlook on life, even after his diagnosis, was truly inspiring. Running this race, while raising money for those affected by PC and to expand the PC research really means a lot to me.
I will also be running alongside one of my best girlfriends, Miss Colleen Bulger!! Together we are fundraising in honor of Alex. Any contribution that you can make to support this cause would be amazing. Thank you for visiting my page!
