As a new runner, the past year has brought many obstacles and triumphs- my first 5K, 10K and Half Marathon are in the books. I could not have completed these goals without the support of my friends and family. I am now asking for your support as I take on the challenge of running the 2016 TCS NYC Marathon and representing Team Red, White and Blue.
"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself".
I believe that our nation's service members are true heroes and I am fortunate to call a few of these heroes my family. Service members make tremendous sacrifices while protecting and serving our nation. Many veterans face challenges in translating those skills into meaningful community engagement, and too often, our leaders fail to make strong connections to one of America’s greatest assets. Team RWB enriches the lives of America's veterans by connecting them to their community through physical & social activities.
I joined Team RWB in the Fall of 2015 and continue to be blown away by the group. The passion, people, positivity, commitment, camaraderie and community are unlike any other and I have been so grateful to be a part of it. Team RWB members truly strive each day to live through the Eagle Ethos and encourage each other to be the best version of themselves. I am excited to now have the support of my Eagle family as I take on this 26.2 journey.
The TCS New York City Marathon has become one of the world's biggest and most popular marathons, as participants run through all five boroughs of New York City (Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan & The Bronx) for 26.2 glorious miles. Team RWB Eagles & Supporters from all across the country will be participating in this year's Marathon to not only feel the glory of crossing the finish line, but to raise awareness and funds for military veterans through Team Red, White & Blue. Visit TeamRWB.org for more info or to get involved.
Please help me reach my goal of $3,000 in honor and support of our nation's heroes.
