I’m excited to have an opportunity to run the NYC Marathon to raise money for pediatric cancer patients and their families to cope with the expenses and stresses of everyday life so they can focus on receiving crucial medical care.
You may know someone or have been personally impacted by pediatric cancer. For that I am truly sorry. I personally have known many families that have experienced it and will be running in honor of a very special boy, Jack Klein, who lost his battle with Burkett’s Lymphoma several years ago.
For those of you that don’t know my personal health journey, for 8 out of the past 14 years, I’ve only been able to do limited activities. In November 2018, I decided to take control of my physical movement and I hired a personal trainer. The progress I made in a short time allowed me to dream for a bigger goal – completing a sprint triathlon. I successfully completed the TriRidgefield, Pawling & Tyathlon sprint triathlons in 2019.
In September 2019, I was invited to join Team Continuum. I successfully completed the 2019 marathon thanks to the amazing support of this organization & everyone that sponsored me and cheered me on. I’m excited to be on the team again to raise money again for this important cause. Running a marathon is incredibly difficult, but not nearly has hard as the impact pediatric cancer has on families.
I deeply appreciate your generosity and encouragement! Thank you so much!
