I'm from a family of runners. My dad last ran Boston 33 years ago. I grew up in North Carolina, but Boston has become my adopted home.
My young career has been dedicated to helping communities better understand political violence - both through research and through working with those directly affected by conflict.
I was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013. The bombings challenged our community in ways I could not have fathomed. For many impacted, it was not the first act of mass violence they had experienced. I'm supporting the One Fund as a tangible way to honor those lost and the many lives forever changed by last April's tragedy. I am also supporting the fund as a step toward building a more constructive conversation about political violence in the United States and elsewhere.
If this is a cause to which you would like to contribute, I ask that you consider doing so by supporting my run.
Thanks for your time and generosity.
