BENEFITING: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
ORGANIZER: J/P Haitian Relief Organization
On November 1, I will run my first marathon – the New York City Marathon – and I'm honored to run on behalf of I’mME and J/P Haitian Relief Organization.
Running a marathon is not something that was on my agenda for this upcoming year, but when the opportunity came to fundraise and run for a cause I care so deeply about, I knew I couldn’t turn down it down.
My first trip to Haiti was last November, and words truly can’t describe the things I saw or the way I felt that week. In short, the trip was life-changing. Since last November, I have made 6 trips back and am fully committed to ensuring that the children we care for in our orphanage, and teach at our school, are given the resources they need to unlock their full potential. I cannot stand to watch another child be neglected, starved, abused or left on the street with no way to fend for themselves.
I’m excited and nervous for the 26.2 miles ahead of me, but I know there is no better motivation out there for me. With the support of my friends and family I’ll get to the finish line. Thank you for reading my bio and more importantly THANK YOU for your support!
