Yesterday was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. A true celebration of humanity. Thank you NYC, and thank you all for supporting  See more

THE STORY:

Ten people and one bathroom. That’s how I grew up. That’s right, 10 people - my Mom and Dad, my two brothers, Andrew and David, and my five sisters, Natalie, Sarah, Meghan, Hannah, and Melanie - and one tiny, cramped, usually smelly bathroom. 


My family didn’t have a lot, but what we had was enough. We had a back yard, a big dining room table, and space to play. We had sport, and sport was all we needed. 


Sport raised me. Competition shaped me. Without it, I wouldn’t be who I am, and my family wouldn’t be what it is. Sport opened the door to unimagined possibility. It paved the way for each of my siblings to go to college. The first generation in my family. 


Six girls, six Division 1 field hockey players. One Olympian, 3 Olympics, and four national team athletes. My sisters and I were the direct beneficiaries of Title IX, and the work of the Women’s Sports Foundation WSF.


On November 5, I will serve, and contribute to the legacy of female empowerment through sport as I run the TCS NYC Marathon for the Women’s Sport Foundation. Support me, support the girls and women in your life, donate to the Women’s Sports Foundation TCS NYC Marathon Team. Your contribution will give a girl the opportunity to complete, play, and discover new possibility. 


Serve her by giving her the opportunity to serve the world in a big way.


Donate now, Donate here. The world needs her, and it needs you! It needs us.
