THE STORY:

On November 23, 2014, I will run my FIRST marathon in Philadelphia. 26.2 miles. The hundreds of miles spent running up and down the West Side Highway and countless hours of cross-training at the gym hopefully will pay off as I run to raise money for an amazing volunteer opportunity:

Come January, I will be leaving New York City to teach English in Colombia (following in my brother's footsteps) for the next year. WorldTeach, the nonprofit that runs the program, partners with a community-based organization that works with lower-income schools. Colombia, a nation in the midst of a peace process, has made enormous strides forward in the past decade. But it is still one of the most unequal countries in the world, which means that there are still enormous educational disparities. I hope that I can change that reality for my future students.

I've been accepted into the teaching program, and now I need to raise $1,600! Any and all donations are greatly appreciated from $1 per mile to $10 per mile. All contributions will fund educator training and development.
