On January 7th I will be running my 10th full marathon, my first in support of the Catch a Lift fund.
Catch a Lift was founded in 2010 and has helped thousands of post 9/11 combat wounded veterans regain their mental and physical health through gym memberships, in home gym equipment, personalized fitness and nutrition programs and a peer support network. Catch A Lift vets are seeing and feeling results including dramatic weight loss, reduction in medications, improved sleep patterns, and strengthened relationships with family and friends, thanks to their healthier lifestyle. CAL’s veteran testimonials attest that CAL has "saved their lives"; the greatest impact of all.
This marathon will be extra memorable for me as it falls on my 27th birthday. For me, marathons are always more meaningful when crossing the finish line means I ran in support of someone else. I am excited to help raise money and awareness for the Catch a Lift fund and help better the lives of those who made sacrifices for all of us.
