Hello Family and Friends.
I couldn't be more excited to be running in the 2019 Boston Marathon behalf of 50 Legs. 50 Legs is a nonprofit charity that provides amputees with the necessary care and prosthetics that they couldn't otherwise afford. They have assisted hundreds of people who have experienced the tragedy of limb loss.
I have completed one marathon in my life time. It was one of the most painful things I have every done. In fact, I told myself that I would never run another one. After the 2013 marathon bombing, my mind was changed. The tragedy hit too close to home. My uncle's niece, Celeste, lost both of her legs that fateful day. I continue to follow her journey as she recovers from her injuries and as she learned to walk again with the help of 50 Legs.
With the above as my inspiration, I will run in April. I know it's going to be difficult, but it's nothing compared to what Celeste, and other victims, endured and lost that day. Please help me support this great cause. No donation is too small. All you have to do is click on the link below.
