I am so thankful for the opportunity to combine two of my passions - promoting resilience in communities and running! It's an honor to be running for SPARK Kindness, a non-profit organization started by two amazing parents and women in 2010. The mission of this organization is "to build kind, empowered, and inclusive communities where no child or family feels alone, bullied, unsupported or unconnected." This organization "supports families, schools, coaches, faith and community leaders in creating a culture that empowers youth and promotes kindness and respect." SPARK is based in my town, Natick, Massachusetts, and the SPARK team is spreading the kindess to other communities, which is why they need financial support.
In my work and personal life, I have seen the impact that positive, connected, supportive communities can have on the well-being of children and families. When we are kind to one another and build each other up, the future is brighter for our children. Help me to spread the kindness, while realizing a personal dream to run the world's oldest and most exciting marathon! Thank you a million times.
