I am very excited to be running the NYC Marathon this coming November with my running partner Katie Prevost. This will be my fourth marathon and I can't wait to run through the streets of an amazing city.
Running has been an importance part of my life since my older sister talked me into running the Thanksgiving day Turkey Trot in the 8th grade. Running has taught me how to set goals and push myself. Although it sounds crazy I really enjoy running marathons. I enjoy training for months and committing myself to the challenge of 26.2 miles!
The Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation supports children with cancer and blood disorders treated at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. CCBF has been accepted as a Community Charity partner for the ING New York City Marathon. CCBF is looking forward to supporting five runners who will be dedicating their marathon experience to supporting children with cancer and blood disorders! Your support enables us to provide comprehensive care to over 1,000 patients, including those who do not have adequate insurance coverage.
I am very excited for the opportunity to be fundraising for Childrens Cancer and Blood Foundation and I appreciate all of your support!
