THE STORY:

Early 2017 was a challenging year professionally and otherwise. I resigned from my position as a VP. With the support of loved ones and confidants, I devised a loosely defined plan to build a solo business, travel, reconnect with family, long lost friends, and myself.

During the course, I began to run. I hated it! Always have. But home cooked meals and a friend with chef talents, too good to refuse...made me do it. I needed to work off those extras someway, somehow. No clubs in site...to dance it off...hello!?!?!

As I ran every morning (and hated it!) I thought about my friends over at Wheeling Forward and, Yannick Benjamin and, my dear friend Joshua Klam. AND...the gorgeous Arianny Ramirez! Individually and collectively,...they inspire me on a daily basis to GET OUT THERE, FIGURE IT OUT, ... AND MAKE IT WORK!! And I LOVE IT!!!

This year I will be running my very first marathon. I've been training hard, sustained a knee injury. I'm still out there.

I WON'T STOP...EVER STOP!!!

We all have the power to get out there and MAKE IT WORK!

To my dearest mother...Cheryl Ruth...who suffers from advanced scoliosis. This is for YOU, too!!! YOU GOT THIS IN SPADES!!!

Please consider donating and helping me reach beyond my goal. Every little bit helps this amazing organization. They push me EVERY day to be the best person I can be.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Much love and light!

Special thank you to ALL who have donated so far, believed in me..and supported me through the thick and thin. MUCH deserved LOVE and appreciation!!
