Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting my Crowdrise Fundraising page for the 2011 NYC Marathon.
As many of you know I am deeply involved with the Fulfillment Fund in Los Angeles and couldn't be more thrilled to run NYC on their behalf.
As a college access organization, the Fulfillment Fund provides first-generation, low-income students with the support necessary to graduate from high school and go on to college.
Through classroom instruction, college counseling, mentoring and scholarships, we transform the lives of students, beginning in high school and extending to college graduation.
Our impact spans beyond the students we serve directly. They, in turn, influence siblings, peers and their community by becoming role models, volunteers, mentors and donors.
Thank you all for your continued support. Since I haven't been training too much this one is more about the experience than it is the time. Well they are all like that but this time I'm not worrying about my finishing time...just that I have a good time and raise money for the Fund.
