Thanks for visiting my page! As many of you know, I was given the chance to run and fundraise for Best Buddies for the Boston Marathon in 2020.
This year, I am excited and grateful to have been given another opportunity to represent an equally important organization, Team Hoyt! I have been inspired and moved by (the late) Dick and Rick Hoyt and am honored to be running for inclusion again this year! Read more about their incredible story: here
Fundraising and running the virtual marathon in 2020 was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. It pushed me mentally to leave my own self doubt at the door, challenged me physically as I was putting in many hours of training each week, and pushed me outside of my comfort zone in order to think creatively to raise thousands of dollars. My experience in 2020 reminds me that it’s important to do hard things though. We can ALL do hard things when given the opportunity and support.
This is why I am so excited to run for Team Hoyt and raise awareness and support for those with disabilities. I want to continue to show the world that everyone- even those with disabilities can achieve their hopes and dreams when they have people who believe in them and are not limited by society.
The Hoyt Foundation is a non-profit organization formed in 1989 that aspires to build the individual character, self-confidence, and self-esteem of America's disabled young people through inclusion in all facets of daily life. Read more here
Thanks for the support!
