For the first time ever, I will be running the Boston Marathon! I am so excited to represent the TB12 Foundation and I am very thankful that they have selected me to be a part of this team.
Sports have been a constant part of my life since I was a child. I was a three sport athlete in high school and ultimately realized in college that I missed being a part of a team. I ended up walking onto the Harvard Radcliffe rowing team (go RAD!!) and attempted to pick up the sport from scratch. This team meant so much to me and taught me even more. The sport itself is grueling and I went in and out of injury over the course of 4 years. That is where I truly learned just how important mobility, nutrition, and preventative care is.
The TB12 Foundation offers free sessions to aid at-risk athletes, who otherwise cannot afford it, in overcoming injuries to help them stay in the game. Athletics has impacted my life in numerous ways. It has made me who I am today, from having a competitive edge to truly learning how to be a great teammate. I hope to help the next generation of athletes have the same opportunities that I had.
As I start my next journey in life after just graduating college in May, I look forward to joining the TB12 Foundation’s team. I would greatly appreciate any support in helping me reach my fundraising goal of $12,000. As Tom Brady would say, Let’s go!!

Helping Athletes Maximize Their Health and Potential – The TB12 Foundation was founded in 2015 by six-time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Its mission is to empower athletes everywhere to do what he’s done in his own storied career – keep going despite the odds. We aim to help athletes improve longevity, prevent injury and stay on the field, court, track or course doing what they love better — and for longer. The TB12 Foundation has been able to help at-risk athletes access the practitioners and programming they need — including pliability treatments, functional strength & conditioning, and advice related to nutrition, hydration, and cognitive health — to overcome injuries or obstacles that would otherwise keep them sidelined.
