THE STORY:

Hi Everyone. I'm Theresa & I am running my first full NYC Marathon on behalf of The YMCA. A few years back I was hit by a drunk driver. I've since had three surgeries & have non-specific right sided paralysis. For the most part, I manage, because I have no choice & given up is NOT an option. Prior to the accident, I ran several half-marathons, was studying MMA & doing Cross Fit while training for my life's bucket list of running a full marathon. I've used & continue to use The YMCA as my rehabilitation. They are doing Great work for many without hesitation. They are very supportive of local communities by offering a wide range of services, mostly low cost & free to those whom can not afford to pay. They knew I was a runner and aware of my personal struggles to deal & cope with pain and one of my bucket list items. They offered me an opportunity to run, but, I wasn't sure I could do it. I only got the invite Friday July 1st, which means I only have 4 months to train? My Son Antonio said, Mom, what's the problem? You can do this. I BELIEVE in you." Well, I wiped my tears, said Yes to The YMCA & hit the streets running. Please help me raise $3000 to help give to The YMCA, who brings So Much Hope to Families each and every day. For those who always wanted to buy me gifts & I said, "not now. The time will come.", Now is that time! Any dollar amount is Greatly Appreciated. And, Please hear my heart, if you can't give a monatary gift, I gladly welcome all the Prayers! Thank You All So Very Much. See ya at the finish line. GOD BLESS
