My Story
Dear friends and family,

As many of you know, I have dealt with anxiety & depression since 2014. Discovering my love for running, not just for the sport, but also for the positive effect it has on my body and mindset, was the light at the end of a very dark tunnel. I truly believe God put this in my path in a way that I could not look away.

No antidepressant meds nor therapy sessions have had such an effect. Because of this, I have done my best to dedicate my life to being an advocate for an active lifestyle & the health benefits that your mind and emotional state can reap from it. It is truly the best antidepressant out there.

This is why I am so excited to partner with the Brookline Team. When you combine my two favorite things: Running + Charity work, it's like giving me a chocolate cake a la mode :), and some of you know how much I LOVE chocolate.

In my efforts to bring awareness and raise funds towards an effort that I hold very close to my heart, I would appreciate your support. Whether it is financial, helping me spread the word, or by well thoughts and prayers. Nothing is too small.

I will be running 26.2 miles and for every donation I receive, I will be dedicating a mile to someone in your life that deals with (and conquers on a daily basis) mental illness. It is no easy task and our world is full of warriors that fight silently through this. 

THANK YOU in advance for your support. I love you all.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
