Dear friends and family,
From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank all of you for your love and support. This is the first time I have entered for a run. I always wanted to get healthy. What better way than to participate and raise funds for The Feed Foundation. The Feed Foundation is a great organization that has touched my heart.
I started training for this run in the middle of July. It is worth getting up at 4:40 am every morning making sure I run 3 miles on the track with my mom and aunt before we head to work. Also making sure I run over 6 miles on the weekends. What motivates me the most everyday is thinking of all the children that we will all help. At first I thought that I was way in over my head and that I could not do this. I had to dig deep within myself and push like I have never before. This is a new chapter in our lives and my sister-in-law Sophia who has lost 100 pounds has agreed to join me. This has been a great experience and will stay in our hearts forever.
I never expected to reach beyond my fundraising goal of $300.00. Between family members and co-workers at my husband and moms job at the American Arbitration Association, to my aunts job at Beth Israel Hand Surgery Center, and my job J.B. Prince Company. The money that has been raised and is still rising has been overwhelming. I cannot thank everyone enough for the out cry of support for this cause that means so much. This has sincerely left me speechless. At this point it looks like we will raise between $700.00 to $1,000.00.
