HELLO friends and family!
Two very exciting things happening here...I've decided to run my first marathon (ahh 26.2 miles!!) and have been selected to run for Team UNICEF in the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon on behalf of children worldwide.
Over the past couple years I've been upping my giving back game including volunteering for various non profit organizations and most recently joining UNICEF Next Gen in NYC to get more involved in raising awareness, advocacy, and education surrounding global children's rights in the local community. This intrinsic desire to do good in the world coupled with running the NYC Marathon being on my ultimate life goals / bucket list makes this funraising opportunity the perfect fusion of all the things I love!
All children deserve to live happy and healthy lives. I'm so grateful for this opportunity and hope you consider joining me to support UNICEF's amazing mission to fight for the survival and development of children worldwide.

UNICEF does whatever it takes to save and protect the world's most vulnerable children. Forty years ago, UNICEF figured out that promoting simple, low-cost interventions like hand washing and breastfeeding could save millions of lives. Undaunted by war or geography, UNICEF delivers.
Members of Team UNICEF NYC have committed to each raise a minimum of $3,500, in support of UNICEF's work worldwide.
