I got involved with T.E.A.L.® through New York Road Runners.
My goal for the TCS New York City Marathon is to raise at least $3,000 for Tell Every Amazing Lady®.
Running is the greatest theater of human inspiration I am aware of. If you run or spectate any marathon, you will know what I mean. I can think of no better way to bring so many people together, working together towards so many amazing causes, yet all aligned with a unifying, shared health and fitness goal. I feel most alive when I am running and post-race. I have the confidence and enthusiasm to take on life’s challenges — and know that I can power through them.
If I had the power to make a difference in one thing related to ovarian cancer, it would be to make testing accessible for all women.
A message I would send to every amazing lady is: Trust your gut. Never ignore any health concerns. You are incredibly strong and capable and time is one of the most powerful forces on your side.
I am grateful to be fundraising for such a worthy cause and being part of this team.
