I can’t begin to express how much of an honor and privilege it is to represent Team Lingzi again at the Boston Marathon on April 20, 2020! I have been incredibly fortunate to run as part of Team Lingzi and this will be my fourth time. Although I never met Lingzi, I am grateful to be a part of the team and movement symbolizing her strength, perseverance, and kind heart and to have this opportunity to continue to spread awareness of the Lingzi Foundation, its mission, and ways that it is giving back to and building community efforts. Lingzi’s memory and spirit have brought many people together and I am so pleased to see the Foundation continue to grow and support initiatives that would have been dear to Lingzi’s heart.
The Lingzi Foundation honors the example set by Lingzi Lu, who spread love and compassion while fearlessly following her dreams, by providing educational opportunities for courageous and ambitious students like her, and supporting organizations that reflect her passions and recognize those making a positive impact in building bridges between cultures and communities.
