THE STORY:

Dear Friends, Family, Colleagues and those that I cherish in my life: 

I have decided to run the 2016 NY Marathon - and there is not one answer to why I chose to do this but several. 

My running story? I started running competitively in the 3rd grade and have the best memories of my childhood traveling in Texas to race with my sister with my mom cheering for us on the sidelines. Today, it's a way for me to reflect on life and feel ALIVE and FREE. 

Why run the marathon? This is my second marathon and the first was embrace my move to NY by being a part of one of the most iconic races in the world & take action towards being involved in the community by supporting something that I believe in which is restoration after 9/11.  This year, the race takes a similiar meaning to sacrifice my time and efforts towards supporting those who have been affected by trauma and terrorism. During my training, I spend this time being grateful for everything I have and enjoying freedom to run. 

Why Tuesday's Children? I picked this charity for my 1st marathon and have since become a Board Member. This charity is a local New York charity that built their roots with the families affected by 9/11 and have grown to support global efforts - because our world needs it. 

How can you help? I have a goal to raise $3K and I need your help! Any donation (big or small) will not only help others but you will help me. 

When you have done this, I encourage you to place #marathonmollie if you share this so we can show the world that it's the best feeling in the world to help someone!
