Greetings!! We’ve had a really busy winter and spring season, so I’ve have very little time to blog. But, I had to share our exciting news — I’ve been chosen by the international organization Water for People to represent them in the 2016 NYC Marathon! On November 6th, I will be running with a team of 10 other athletes helping to bring awareness to the world-wide water crisis.
As an avid runner, I’m so excited to be running NYC! Running for Water for People makes it possible for me to run in my dream race while raising funds for a cause I truly care about. I think Water for People is a great organization because over their 25 years, they’ve built water stations, pumps, toilet and sanitation facilities in impoverished communities in 9 countries around the world. I also admire the fact that Water for People has a small hands-on staff and its easy to find their accountability information, which is posted throughout their website and social media links. Check it out when you have the chance 🙂

My personal goal for my campaign is $2,500 dollars, which will help to expand the organization’s efforts to alleviate water poverty in more regions.

Blessings and love to you all!!
