As a teacher I have devoted my professional life, as well as most of my personal life, to improving the lives of children. I chose this path so that I could make a difference. Now, I want to extend my impact by helping an amazing charity. This year I will be running the Chicago Marathon and I will be raising money for the Peanut Tillman Cornerstone foundation. The Cornerstone Foundation helps families with sick children by alleviating the burden financially and emotionally during their stay in the hospital.
In my personal life I have been fortunate enough to have five nieces and nephews whose lives I can be apart of. I’m so blessed that they have all been healthy and happy. However, that is not the case for children everywhere. The Cornerstone Foundation not only provides financial help for families in need but also devotes time in the hospitals making the children’s time there more enjoyable.
