Hi, I’m Allie! I am running the NYC Marathon to support HeartShare Human Services, an organization I have volunteered with and supported since I was a child. My work with HeartShare even inspired me to become a school physical therapist, where I ensure students with varying motor abilities can access and benefit from their educational environment.
I am a runner who has run 23 marathons in 22 states! I ran the NYC Marathon in 2014 with my older sister and am so excited I get to run it again for HeartShare!
Please support my goal to raise at least $3,000 for HeartShare. You can read below to learn more about HeartShare and their programs:
