BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
Thanks for checking out my fundraising page. On November 1st I will be running the NYC Marathon for the charities J/P Hatian Releif and I'mMe. Both are doing amazing things in Haiti to improve the lives of the Haitian people. I was humbled and slightly terrfied when David Nelson asked me to run the marathon, since this will be my first full marathon. I knew I couldnt say no though if my running the race could help change the lives of even a few people and help raise awareness about these charities.
Personally I have many reasons to run as well. One is as a parent and wife I watched my husband and children take on challenges in sports that were both mentally and physically challenging. I have always admired their ability to work hard and stay tough especially when times were difficult. This marathon is my opportunity to push myself like they were always able to do all these years.
