I'm excited to run my first New York City Marathon in support of the New York Junior League as a part of Team NYJL 2019!
This fall I start my 7th year volunteering with the NYJL as Fundraising Events Council Head over the Golden Tree, Astor House Events, and Savor the Spring committees. Previously I have spent time on fundraising committees Astor House Events, Specialty Events, and Marathon, chairing the latter two. I am proud of the work we do to raise funds in support of the NYJL community committees that work with our partners in NYC and even more excited to represent and support our work on Team NYJL.
Five years ago I started running in the Brooklyn Half Marathon. Since then I’ve used running as a form of active meditation, excuse to get outdoors, and ice cream. There’s nothing I love quite so much as digging in to a big bowl of ice cream after a long run - see Edgartown Dairy Queen photo ;) In March I took the leap and completed my first Skimarathon at Engadin, and I’m hoping to use that success as proof that I can take to the 5 boroughs of NYC on foot in the TCS NYC Marathon!
I hope that you will consider making a donation toward my $2,000 fundraising goal. Any donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
