BENEFITING: AMERICA SCORES NY
Taking a stab at growing my first beard and running my first half marathon, but more importantly hoping to raise money for a charity and a sport I feel so strongly about. I don't typically like asking for donations, but I've been volunteering with America Scores and have seen firsthand the huge difference a small donation can make.
Thanks so much for the support! (Note: ALL donations go to the kids, not to me!)
