In under two weeks, I am running the 2019 Beach to Beacon 10K in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. This race was founded by Boston Marathon and Olympic runner Joan Benoit Samuelson in her hometown to raise money for children’s charities.
I am happy to be running this year’s Beach to Beacon 10k as part of a team raising money for the The Telling Room. The Telling Room is a nonprofit in Portland, Maine, teaching youth how to express themselves through written word. Founded in 2004, The Telling Room is Maine’s only youth-focused literary arts organization offering innovative, effective and often life-changing writing programs for Maine kids each year. Their programs reach students from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and all programs are 100% free to students and their families.
I picked this fundraiser to participate because of the positive impact The Telling Room has on the Maine community. By helping to develop their writing, youth from all backgrounds are strengthening their communication, self-expression and self-confidence.

My fundraising goal is small, but please consider donating. I would love to reach or exceed this goal by race day. Donations of $10 or more are welcome. Donations are tax-deductible.
Please consider a contribution toward my goal!
