Last year two of my dreams came true, I ran the Boston Marathon & became a mother!!! You would think I would settle at just that, but that’s not me. I’m always finding new ways to challenge myself, to inspire others and to change the world. *Donate Here*
I’m excited to announce that I will be running the New York Marathon with Team UNICEF this November. Running this marathon is my way of challenging myself to run 26.2 miles for the 4th time, inspiring new Moms that we are capable of anything we put our minds to, and changing the world by fundraising money for such an amazing cause.
UNICEF saves and protects the world’s most vulnerable children, working to ensure child rights. They provide health care, immunizations, nutrition, access to safe water and sanitation services, basic education, protection and emergency relief all over the world (watch video here). As a new Mom the importance of their work means more to me now than it ever has. The thought of not being able to provide my daughter with basic necessities is heartbreaking. I want to be able to give Cruz the world, just as any Mother would.
I couldn’t be more excited for this opportunity and in saying that, I need your help. Each runner on the team must raise a minimum of $3,500 to participate. No matter what you are able to contribute know that every little bit will help.
Running 26.2 miles has never had so much meaning to me.
Thanks in advance for your generosity.
