Support Me

This is me after a 23 km run.  But it's worth it.  

I chose to run a full marathon for Make-A-Wish as this wonderful charity brings joy, hope and happiness to children and their families who are going through a difficult time. By granting beautiful and memorable experiences, this foundation allows "kids to just be kids" and brings happiness to the families who dearly love them.  
As a mother of a 5 year old boy, this cause hits home for me. There is nothing stronger and more universal than the love of a parent for their child.
Please support me me through this challenge. The spirit and courage of these children inspire me and if I can help raise funds to help one child have a wish granted, it will be worth every step as I train for this marathon.  
Race day is September 16th, 2017
