I am running my 1st 1/2 marathon to get healthy & help raise money for the child of growing places to have access to more fitness programs!
I just graduated from UNH in May and will be going back in
the fall to completely my Master’s program for Occupational Therapy. While being in school I have been working at Growing Places for the past 3 years. I love my job there and I love the kids I work with. When I heard about the ½ marathon some of my co-workers were going to be running to help raise money I was very intrigued. I learned a little bit more about it and decided that I wanted to challenge myself to not only reach a goal (that seems impossible at this point if I might add) of running an entire ½ marathon, yes that’s 13.1 miles and at the same time helping raise money for the kids I love so much that attend the program.
The training will start officially in July, and unofficially for me…TODAY, and the race is in October. I know that with the support of my family, friends, and co-works I will be able to complete my goal of crossing the finish line! Now I just need your help to reach my goal of raising 750.00 to help support the physical fitness programs of Growing Places. It’s a great cause and the kids will really enjoy it if they can do Yoga again next year!
