Stuff About Me:

Hi Friends and Family,

On March 16, 2014, I will be running in the 2014 NYC Half-Marathon to support The Fresh Air Fund.  Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities.

Last summer, more than 4,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada.  Kids learn how to swim, go on overnight hiking trips and participate in dance and art classes.  

Many Fresh Air children have never run barefoot in the grass, caught fireflies or gone swimming in a lake.  Having spent my childhood in Iowa, I can’t imagine missing out on these simple summertime adventures.

I've done this race several times before, but have never run on behalf of a special cause. I hope you will support me and The Fresh Air Fund by making a donation.  Thank you in advance for your contribution.

All the best,
