4 Months until NYC

Friends and Family,
I'm excited to announce I will be running my first New York City Marathon on November 5, 2017 as part of the Wediko Children's Services team. After my amazing experience running on behalf of Wediko in the 2016 Boston Marathon, I want to continue doing my part to support emotionally vulnerable children. The organization and its mission hit close to home for us, and I feel strongly about making sure all children and families receive the same opportunity for care we have. My run will be dedicated to all of the children and families who haven't been given a voice to advocate on their own behalf.
I will be running beside my partner in life and in running - Andy (who is also a Wediko board member!). We will be doing our part to pay forward our good fortune. In the end, it doesn’t matter who finishes first (but yes it does!); what matters is we’re helping kids.
Please help me achieve my goal of raising $7,500 for this incredible organization. No donation is too big or too small and it will go to such an amazingly important cause.
Many, many thanks,
