THE STORY:

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to announce that I will be running in the TCS New York City Marathon as a member of Team Best Buddies! This will be my very first marathon and I could not be happier to participate with Best Buddies and this wonderful group of runners. Best Buddies is an organization I’ve been very passionate about since high school, so I am happy to raise funds for a very deserving organization.

BEST BUDDIES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to establishing a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). 

My greatest memories of Best Buddies are with my buddy, Eileen. Nicknamed “The Mayor”, she can talk to anyone about anything for hours on end. Some of the activities we’ve enjoyed together are bowling, watching basketball games, going to  the Best Buddies prom, and more. Whether we were by ourselves, with friends at school, or with our families, we always have a great time together and end up laughing.

Having recently moved to the New York City area, I am looking forward to getting involved with Best Buddies here. Over the years, Best Buddies has brought so many remarkable people into my life and has done the same for thousands of other individuals. Running with Team Best Buddies is just the beginning of my involvement in NYC, so I am excited for the years to come. My goal is to raise $3,500 for Best Buddies by November 2nd, and I would truly appreciate any and all support! Thank you!!!
