Thanks to great friends and support from so many participants in this past weekends event, I am happy to say that we have officially punched our ticket to run in the NYC marathon. All the training has been intense, and it has been great having my team there every step of the way!
This past weekend we had over 150 participants run in our first 5k/10k. It was a success in more than just numbers. During the race, I was able to connect with people from all walks of life. Some of the participants were cancer survivors themselves and hearing their stories only made our mission that much more meaningful.
Dating back to just a couple of weeks ago, our chances of attaining our $4,000 goal was looking slim to none. We were at $1,190, and had no idea what kind of numbers we were going to get at our event. I will say that G Garza was the man with the plan on this one. He was able to gather his community of Rancho Viejo and get them on board with our vision and purpose. G would not have been able to do this alone. A Special thanks to the Rancho Viejo Community and all of the workers that provided assistance to make this event a success. Natalie Sales, the country club and resort fitness director, was the person who really helped solidify everything! Natalie I cannot thank you enough for everything you did, without you and Rancho Viejo’s help, the event wouldn’t be possible.
I am in still in amazement that we raised $2,915 on the event considering we only had four weeks to prepare. I am happy to say that we have raised $4,105!
My team has been behind me from the start and we are now about to run in NYC.
To everyone that has donated, I want to thank you for helping us get to our goal. For those of you who participated in our event this past weekend, you have no idea how much you did by showing up and supporting our cause.
We Run Because We Can!
