I have reached a personal goal as a life long runner of qualifying for the 2018 Boston Marathon. To make this even more meaningful I have decided to dedicate my efforts to what I feel is a very worthy cause. I was inspired by the life of James W. Foley, a conflict journalist, educator and humanitarian who gave his life providing a voice for the voiceless. I am honored to represent his legacy and would like to spread the message of love for humanity that James lived so wholeheartedly. I can only hope through reaching this goal that I am able to convey how Jim has touched my life. Your contribution will advocate for the release of American Hostages worldwide, promote a culture of safety and equity freelance journalists in conflict areas and empower disadvantaged youth through education.
Thank you for supporting this worthy cause!
