Welcome to My Personal Page
My personal journey started in 2014 when I set a goal to run a marathon in each of the 50 American states. I realized I learned more from travel and volunteering than I had in my entire University career. As a new mom, I want to continue this journey to make the world a better place - one that I will be proud to pass on to our daughter.
Throughout 2017/2018/2019, I am participating in 30 races (marathons, half marathons & 5km) in support of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). In each race, I will run with my 40lb ruck sack for a chosen fallen soldier. I made a goal to run a marathon in every state, and it starts here.
In addition to the marathons, I will also be completing several random acts of kindness ANONYMOUSLY (to them) in each state ie. buying families groceries, dinners, plane tickets, volunteering, etc. I chose to team with this foundation because TAPS provides direct support to families who have been impacted by a death in the military, regardless of geography or circumstance.
I want to be the change I wish to see in the world, and every dollar towards my goal is another dollar towards positive change.
The funds I raise will flow directly into TAPS programming which supports these families through an amazing network of resources, seminars and publications. TAPS provides these services at no charge to survivors from all branches of the service, including Reserves and National Guard. TAPS’ programs and services are available not only for immediate family, but also for extended family and friends. Please help me honor our fallen heroes by supporting me in this effort. No donation is too big or too small.
