This year, I am turning 30 and it’s time to make one of my lifetime goals a reality! I will be running the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon with CHAMPIONS for CHAM, Montefiore’s new charity team to benefit the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM). The race is extra meaningful for me because I will be running in honor of some very special people. First, I am dedicating my race to my daughter Paige Angelina. When Paige was born in 2009, she suffered from breathing problems and had to be hospitalized for two weeks. During that time, I met a dedicated team of doctors and nurses who helped Paige recover. Today, Paige is a healthy six-year-old and I know that fundraising for CHAM will help thousands of other children and their families.
Second, I am running the marathon for my father, who I recently lost to cancer. Instead of mourning his death, I choose to celebrate his life. He drove me to my high school track meets at Van Cortlandt Park but never got to see me run. The NYC Marathon is probably the biggest race I will ever run and I know he will have front row seats to see me from start to finish!
Lastly, Montefiore has provided me with a great job and introduced me to a group of people who I now consider family. I would like to thank my colleague Kerry Lee who believed in me and encouraged me to sign up for the team. Thank you, Kerry! I am thrilled to give back to Montefiore by fundraising for CHAM and hope you will donate to my page today. Reaching my goal and crossing the finish line will be the best 30th birthday presents I could ever ask for. Thank you for visiting!
