BENEFITING: THE IM ABLE FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: THE IM ABLE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I've had a passion for running almost my whole life. I started long distance running in 2009 with a 50k at Blue Marsh Lake. From there a fire was lit and I've gone on to run 11 more 50k's, 5 marathons and five 50 mile races. However, one thing I've never done is run to raise money for a specific cause. I can't think of a better cause to raise money for than IM ABLE Foundation. IM ABLE supports those with disabilities by helping individuals keep an active lifestyle.
Running has always been personal for me, with a goal of keeping myself in shape. Obviously remaining physically active is very important to me, so a cause like IM ABLE aligns so closely with my beliefs. As an athlete, I have so much respect for those who don't let a disability get in the way of getting out there and staying active. I'm so excited for the challenge of running with the goal of raising money to help other athletes in their chosen sports. Running now has even more of a purpose for me. Thanks for helping me out with this exciting new goal!!
