Fundraising Honor Roll

 

Ten years ago I never dreamed I would choose to run, much less LOVE to run!  I sure NEVER dreamed I would one day run in the New York City marathon! 

This dream has come to light because of persistence and a passion!  Three years ago I began a journey to change my lifestyle.  I realized a need to become healthier and fit.  I wanted to be more active and enjoy life.  At this time in my life, I began running.  Almost three years, several 5Ks, multiple 1/2 marathons, one full marathon and 85 POUNDS later I transformed my body and life!! 

Running has provided me with countless hours of self-confidence, peace, "me time", and encouragement that I needed to be able to do more in life.  If I could run 3 miles, I could run 10; if I could run 10, I could run 13.2; if I could run 13.2, maybe, just maybe I could run 26.1!  The possibilities were always there.

I am the Student Wellness Coordinator at the Eldon School District; this is another passion along with running and my family.  I see students struggle every day with being overweight and obese.  It is my goal to encourage them and help them to have a better way of life, a healthy lifestyle.  I strive to be a positive role model for these students and their families.  I run with students when I can at track practice or walk with students at walking clubs, whatever it takes to help get a student going.  I love to see a child feel good about him or her and believe they can do it!

 

"Did you know?! Nearly 1 in 3 kids in the U.S. are overweight or obese, and our current generation could become the first in American history to live shorter lives than their parents."  This is a quote that stuck with me the first time I read it and broke my heart.  I hope that by running in the NYC marathon with Team Healthier Generation, I will be able to raise enough money to help make a difference for our kids. My goal is to raise at least $5000, hopefully more!

Will you help support me and our cause?  I look forward to running for my passion and making a difference in the life of a child!!

 

Thank you for your support!!
