Detroit is a city that has influenced me in every aspect of my life. The music, art, and hustle of the people continue to frame my mindset with each day forward. I’ve decided to run the Detroit Free Press Marathon this year and it only makes sense to give back to the city that I’m lucky to pound the pavement in. I’d like to have all money raised go towards the Detroit Public Schools Foundation as I believe that the next generation in line will be the ones to continue to keep Detroit moving forward as well as inspiring many others like myself.
I signed up for this marathon before the pandemic so the handling of the event is still unclear to me. As of now, all is moving forward it seems, and regardless on October 18th should my body get me there, I will make 26.2 miles.
Thanks in advance for anything you can contribute.
