I am happy to announce that I will be crossing off a bucket list item and running the 2020 Boston Marathon on April 20th. Along the way, I will be raising funds for Dream Big!, a foundation that I believe very strongly in.
Dream Big! is a 501(c)3 charity that works to provide girls from low-income situations with the with the equipment, uniforms, sports attire, athletic footwear, program fees, training expenses, sports opportunities and the supplies they need to participate in sports and physical activities that contribute to their health, education and overall well-being.
Sports have always been a huge part of my life; molding me into the person that I am today, as well as providing me with some unbelievable opportunities. I have learned valuable lessons that I have brought with me into my working life. I have learned how to win... and lose, how to participate on a team, and how to keep going when things get tough. I truly believe that every athletic experience I have had along the way has made me a better person today.
I am excited about raising funds for an organization that will provide those same learning opportunities to girls in New England. I hope that you will consider supporting me on this adventure by making a contribution to my fundraising page.
Running may seem like an individual thing, but I have a feeling that this is going to take a team, and I look forward to having you all on my team!
