Hello everyone! I am excited to announce that on March 18th I will be running the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half for Team Child Mind Institute. The Child Mind Institute is a non-profit committed to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders. These disorders affect more than 17 million American children and teens, and stigma and lack of awareness keep nearly two-thirds of them from getting help. The Child Mind Institute works to change this by delivering the highest quality of care, accelerating research into the developing brain, fighting stigma and empowering families with information they need to get kids effective care. My goal is to raise $2,000 before my half marathon to help the Child Mind Institute continue its work. Any amount you can donate helps! And if you would like to learn more about the Child Mind Institute, there are great, free resources available on its website, childmind.org. Thank you for reading and thanks for any contribution you can make!
