BENEFITING: St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
EVENT: ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I'll keep this short and sweet but just a brief note on why I decided to take on this crazy venture! With "30" closing in on me I wanted to do something that took me out of my comfort zone. Running for me is a breath of fresh air. Although I don't get to do it as much as I would like with the craziness of my life, it's something I've always loved. There's just something about putting those headphones on and tuning the world out. Running a half marathon has been on "bucket list" for years and i figured what better time than now?! After signing up for the Pittsburgh Half Marathon I discovered you could run to benefit a charity. Childhood illness pulls at my heartstrings like nothing else. It's just not fair. Our childhood for most of us is such a priceless and magical time, as it should be. No child deserves to have that stolen away. No parent deserves to be stripped of having the absolute pure joy of raising a happy healthy child, only to have it replaced with hospital visits and medical bills. So I feel truly impowered and honored to be running to help those families. So please help by donating anything you can! Thank you guys! Wish me luck on May 1st! Love you!
