Charlotte's 2024 Boston Marathon Fundraiser for Team Samaritans!
I am so excited and honored to be running the 2024 Boston Marathon for Team Samaritans!!! Samaritans is an extraordinary organization that provides resources related to the prevention of suicide and support for those that are impacted by suicide. I grew up watching the Boston Marathon and it was always the highlight of my year. I was always inspired by those that decided to this crazy, brave and vulnerable thing, but I never considered myself a "runner". Earlier this year I ran my first half-marathon, and I really enjoyed the process of building on mileage and tackling new goals. Running is my outlet to take care of myself and check in on my mental health status. A few months ago my dad got the idea that he wanted to run the Boston Marathon, and I considered that to be as good of a sign as I would get! We are so excited to both run for Team Samaritans. I am running for anyone who has ever struggled with their mental health. I believe that everyone has experienced this at some point in their lives. I am running for Samaritan's ideal that it is ok to not be "ok" all the time and to provide help for those that need it. I am running for those who are no longer able to run, and for those that loved them. I believe strongly in Samaritans goal of a world without suicide, and want to do my part to aid in those efforts. Thank you so much in advance for supporting my training journey. This is a new and humbling experience for me, and I could not do it without your support!! Keep an eye on this page for training and fundraising updates. Otherwise, we hope to see you on April 15th!
