Fundracing

I believe in giving back. I have sponsored lecturers for women’s programs, make donations to various non-profits, and donate my time to do pro-bono work for start-up companies and speak at events. Now I can combine my love of community service with my running by doing fundracing. My current projects are listed below.

Back on My Feet

Back on My FeetBack on My Feet, founded by Anne Mahlum in Philadelphia in 2007. They promote the self-sufficiency of homeless populations by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. They don’t provide food or shelter, but do provide much more than just running. Their members participate in a comprehensive program that offers connections to job training, employment and housing. Those benefits are earned by maintaining 90 percent attendance at the morning runs three days a week for the six to nine month program. I’ve been working with the DC chapter helping to raise funds and promote events.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training

Team in Training LogoMany people are familiar with Team in Training (TNT) even if they don’t know the name. The purple shirts are recognizable. You see the shirts in most post-event photos.

LLS’ mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. I have friends and family affected by blood cancers and am proud to participate with this group.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) is the world’s leading sports charity training program. TNT’s dynamic, hands-on training program enables participants to realize their dream of completing a marathon, half marathon, triathlon, century ride or hike adventure. I signed up in January 2011. My goal is to do my first half marathon while raising funds and awareness.
