Three years ago, seeking relief from an injury sustained from years of abusing my back, my Doctor recommended I either lose weight (as I had gained weight) or I needed to have surgery to help ease the pain. I had no idea it would lead to preparing to run in the biggest stage of running which is the NYC Marathon. I proceeded to losing 45 lbs in 5 months, healthier and lighter I began participating in orgainized competitve races and started feeling a renewed sense of confidence and pride within myself and for my country (Haiti). I wanted to give back to my community by any means nescessary. I joined the New York Road Runners organization and started to run for different charitable causes, and yet I still felt that I could and should be doing more. During this process an unfortunate earthquake struck Haiti and I along with thousands of fellow Haitians lost family, friends and loved ones in one of the worlds worst tragedys to date. I wanted to do something to help out and came across Community2Community (C2C), I loved what they stood for and wanted to assist in whatever capacity that I could, so I chose to run for a cause that I believe in, Its an organization that is assisting in rebuilding Haiti one community at a time.....
