Welcome to my fundraising page for the 2019 Chicago Marathon!
I want to kindly thank you for supporting myself and the American Heart Association. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
I told myself that 2019 was going to be the year that I challenge myself. I have dreamt of running a marathon for a long time now, and I finally decided that this year was going to be the year I do it.
I decided to run with the American Heart Association for a few reasons. Reason #1 I am running is because of how much research AHA does, and the education they provide on cardiovascular diseases. Working in the clinical research industry has given me a new perspecitve on just how important our health is, which also brings me to my second reason. Reason #2 I am running is because I have a handful of family members who have experienced cardiovascular events. Luckily I still have them all by my side today. Fundraising for an organization that provides information and conducts research on the events that my family members have endured, only made perfect sense.
I am excited, anxious, scared, intimidated, ecstatic and motivated to make my first marathon the best 26.2 miles I have ever ran.
Thank you again for your generous contribution.
