I'm Jess and I am so excited to be given the opportunity to run the New York City Marathon. To run a marathon is something I find great joy in doing. I am proud to say that I have completed 6 marathons so far including the Boston Marathon in 2012. As a runner, to complete a race (of any distance) is welcomed with a great sense of accomplishment. I'm looking forward to this feeling with the ING NYC Marathon but even more excited to be running this on behalf of Seleni Institute.
Seleni is a nonprofit organization that promotes the importance of mental health and wellness for women. Not only am I running this race for myself, but I am running this for the late Cynthia Movold (my mom), my GMa Ruthie (who is pure sunshine if any of you know her), my incredible sisters, my friends, my family, my co-workers, my neighbors, my friends' families, for women I don't know and for overall support towards health and betterment for women of all ages, from all places.
Team Seleni is training hard for the 2013 ING NYC Marathon. We're running to raise awareness of women's perinatal mental health issues, as well as securing necessary funding for research, care and education in the field of women's reproductive and maternal mental health.
Every mile of training becomes that much more meaningful for the team knowing we have support like yours. Please donate now to the Seleni Institute to ensure the improvement of mental health care for women, and ultimately families and communities, in NYC and beyond.
Thank you for your time and support, now let's run!! :)
