BENEFITING: City Year
ORGANIZER: City Year
EVENT: Philadelphia Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: Nov 18, 2017
I told myself I was going to sit this one out. However, with City Year Philadelphia celebrating its 20th Anniversary, I figured I'd celebrate by running 13.1 miles in the Philadelphia Half Marathon. This will be my fourth Philly half and so excited to be raising money for this incredible organization. Oh and as my husband noted, I get to also work on those fitness goals. :)
I've spent my professional career at City Year (Seattle, Philly, and HQ). Over the past 11+ years I've had the privilege to manager and work with our AMAZING AmeriCorps Members. Their dedication to our students, schools, and communities is inspiring. Help me help them with a donation. Every little bit helps.
