Yes, I am running in the NYC Marathon in November.
For those that know me well, know that this will be quiet the challenge!
However by doing this I will be positively impacting those afflicted with addiction and their families and that is a cause I want to help.
You can help too!
I am running for The Herren Project! All monies raised goes to direct to this wonderful organization that provides resources for individuals in addiction recovery, their families, as well as incredible education outreach.
