BENEFITING: NYRR Youth Programs
Growing up, I've always been an overweight kid. Even though there was physical education and recess periods at school, it was still never enough exercise for any kid. As I was lucky enough to find football which introduced me to fitness and ultimately helped me lose the weight, I realized that a lot of kids don't have that opportunity especially in NYC. That is why I want to help give kids that chance by running the NYC Marathon and raise money for Team For Kids who help bring running and free fitness programs to schools around the country.
