I am so proud to be running the 2013 Boston Marathon for Dream Big!, a charity that provides low-income and homeless girls wih sports and fitness equipment, uniforms, athletic footwear, program fees, training expenses, sports opportunities and the supplies they need to participate in sports and physical activiites that contribute to their overall health, fitness and well being. As a child i did not have the opportunity to get active in sports, but now as an adult i see the impact it has on an individuals life. If i can use my current physical ability to bring awareness to the importance of physical activity and a healthy lifestyle while helping young girls achieve their dreams, whatever they may be, I will take the challenge head on by running 26.2 miles and smile while finishing. Over the next five month our team has a goal to raise $75,000 for Dream Big! My personal goal is $4000, so please help us raise as much as possible to give these young ladies the opportunities many of us didn't have. Maybe skipping that Starbucks one day and donating, no amount is too small!
