THANK YOU to everyone who showed their love and support and helped me reach and go over my fundraising goal of $2620!!! I am SO thankful and appreciative!
When choosing a charity to run for Team Fork Kids really stood out to me. It never really occurred to me that having gone to primary/high school that had such a strong emphasis on health and fitness, providing us with a number of sports programs and making phys ed class almost mandatory - was a privilege! Places like Phys Ed class, Rowing, Netball, Cross Country, Swimming, Athletics - sports that we had to/could choose to do in school - these are the places that I learned so much about setting goals and achieving them, persistence, team work and putting in hard work to get what you want and of course health! I think of how much fun I had and how many life long friends I made just by being part of these teams! Things like this we take for granted.
Kids everywhere should have opportunities just like this - to run and learn these skills not just physically but mentally too and to just enjoy a successful happy healthy life! That is why I chose Team For Kids - to help keep their amazing FREE programs going for kids who don't have these opportunities at their schools! And also because they are a bunch of badass runners that I really do love! Only 32 days until the NYC Marathon and I cannot wait to show up in my bright green TFK colors and run for the kids!
Sorry for the cheesy spiel and once again THANK YOU!!! Those of you have not yet donated and would still like to give to this charity here is the link:
