BENEFITING: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: SANDY HOOK PROMISE FOUNDATION
Running a marathon...a goal, a dream, an item on my bucket list, an impossibility. I never thought I would be doing it, especially the NYC Marathon. Yet here I am in the midst of training, with my sister, for something much bigger than my dream. I received the Sandy Hook Promise email blast to apply for the NYC Marathon shortly after watching the Boston Marathon. It was a sign to me that I should fill it out. I figured I didn't stand a chance with all the other much more experienced runners that would be applying. However, I still hit the submit button, because you never know. And now here I am running for an important cause that is near to my heart, Sandy Hook Promise. Sometimes an opportunity presents itself when you least expect it or are ready for it.
I remember being in my classroom the day of the Sandy Hook tragedy trying to make sense of what just happened. Preventing another gun related tragedy is the mission of Sandy Hook Promise. Education is the key and your donation will make that possible. Although I am running to achieve my personal goal, I am running at the same time to support Sandy Hook Promise. Will you please help me reach my goal of raising $3,000 with your donation?

Thank you for your support!!
