THE STORY:

My grandfather was and always will be one of the most important and influential people in my life.  He taught me many lessons in life, including the importance of giving your best and caring for others.  In recent years he fought a good fight against Multiple Myeloma, and it was his perseverance and loving spirit that made me want to give back to others. 

As an educator at an IB World School I also believe that it is important to model that which we hope to inspire our students to live; life-long learning that results in meaningful actions.  In recent years I have developed a love for running and will be running the Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon in February 2017.  I reflected for a long while on how I could achieve this new goal of giving back, a sort of “pay it forward” so to speak, and decided that I would like to make my run count for more than just the benefits it gives me.  Therefore, I will be raising funds to support the Children’s Miracle Network.  Throughout my preparation leading up to the run I hope to reach and possibly go beyond my fundraising goal of 1000 USD.  I have chosen to support this charity because my grandfather believed children are precious and deserve to be loved and protected, and this is one way that I am able to help do that.

Thank you for helping me to make a difference.
