Hi! I'm Tina. I just finished my first year of graduate school in quest of PhD in biomedical sciences at Boston University. Attending BU has been a dream of mine since I was a teenager. With my invite to study at there, one of my childhood dreams was filled.
Another dream of mine is to run the New York City marathon. So after finishing my first year at BU, I thought there would be no better time to check off another big dream. I'm raising money to run the NYC marathon for Touch Foundations - a program that focus on educating local healthcare providers in Tanzania, Africa. This foundation has done incredible work for people living in this area and as a student studying to improve healthcare in our own country, I fully support what this organization is doing.
My sister and I are running this race together and our goal is to raise 3,000$ for Touch. With this money, Touch Foundation will continue to increase the quality of healthcare in Tanzania.
Thank you all for your support!
