Hello one and all and Welcome to my fundraising page!
I am SO excited to be raising money for the Fairmount Park Conservancy! Sunday May 5th my dear mother, Mariah Reed (link to her fundraising page here) will be running 10K for Philly's Parks! Every little bit helps so even if it's just a couple bucks, please donate!
I have to say that this cause is near and dear to me. Our parks provide increadible programming and conservation, something we are very grateful for as new parents. I feel very lucky that my daughter can grow up with everything a major city like Philly has to offer while staying connected to nature and having access to beautifully maintained green spaces. From my third date with my husband (a picnic in Clark Park), to our newborn strolls when Rosie had just been born and I had no idea what to do with her, we have created so many wonderful memories in Philly's parks.
Thank you for helping me give back to preserve one of the things that makes our city so special.
Because of Park Champion runners who have participated over the last 7 years, we've been able to restore the historic Belmont Plateau 5k Cross Country Course and have built the first sections of the Trolley Trail—a planned 5 mile soft trail loop around West Park following the route of the former Fairmount Park Trolley.
Read a Q&A with one of our runners from 2018 about why they ran with us.
