Beautiful people of America, thank you for navigating your way to my fundraising page. By now you've gathered that I will be running the 2013 Boston Marathon in an effort to raise money for First Descents, an amazing organization that provides unique and life changing outdoor experiences and adventures for young adult cancer fighters and survivors.
First Descents Testimonial:
"First Descents saved my life. I was diagnosed with Stage IIIA ovarian cancer in December, 2007. In August, 2009, I went rock-climbing in Jackson, Wyoming with First Descents. When I arrived at camp, my life as a survivor was still very much defined by fear, sadness and anger. My body had been debilitated and weakened from my treatments. I was unsure how to go on living. Through First Descents, I was given the opportunity to connect with other young adults who truly understood my struggles. And through First Descents, I realized that it was possible to live fully – and joyfully – after cancer. I truly cannot imagine my life as a survivor without First Descents. It means the world to me." - FD Participant
- - dfSix months ago I had no intention of running a grueling 26.2 miles in Aprl of 2013. I then learned about this incredible organization and I was inspired to help. FD's mission is unique, powerful and resonates personally for many. It's something that I am very excited to be able to contribute to.
