Welcome to my 2020 Boston Marathon campaign for the MEB Foundation! I had the privilege of being part of MEB's team for 2019 Boston but 4 days before I was to fly out for the marathon and 7 days before the race start I fracturerd my left hip. Instead of living my dream and crossing the finish line I went into surgery to have two rods inserted into the hip to stablize the break. I have started back to running with just as much determination as before.
Meb Keflezighi also fractured his hip in 2007 and came back in 2009 to win the New York City marathon. He inspires all runners across the world with his passion and generosity. Through his MEB Foundation he supports programs and events that:
Empower youth and their families to “Maintain Excellent Balance”
Provide the tools and resources to lead healthy lifestyles.
Engage children in academics, in and out of school hours.
Provide opportunities for children to play and learn positive life skills through involvement in sports.
Engage entire communities in promoting youth health, education and fitness.
Please join me in supporting the MEB Foundation and helping me cross the Boston finish line in 2020. Never give up on your dreams!
