BENEFITING: Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary
ORGANIZER: Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary
EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
My passions in life are my two beautiful girls, Aaliyah and Jaydin. They make my life an adventures every day and always keep me on my toes. My second passion is health and wellness. I enjoy a challenge just like anyone else. Running the Boston Marathon has never been on my "list of things to do". This all changed recently when a friend asked me to join her as a member of Mass Eye and Ear's official marathon team. We are running this race to honor the memory of her father. This will be amazing, life altering journey. At first I said no. Honestly, I was unsure if I could push myself to run 26.2 miles. However, using my military training as motivation, I know I will cross that finish line.
I am excited to take on this challenge with my friend and the rest of our teammates. Please consider making a donation to this great charity. There is no amount too small. I need everyone's help to reach, and exceed my goal of $5000. I thank you for supporting me and my journey to cross the finish line!

Every dollar raised makes it possible for Mass. Eye and Ear to excel in clinical care, research and medical education. That, in turn, allows us to provide the finest specialty care to every person who comes through our door and to share our knowledge in order to help patients around the world.
