~ CHALLENGE & INSPIRE ~
I love to challenge myself with new goals. One of my favorite ways to challenge myself is through endurance athletics. Having completed 6 marathons and 1 ultra-marathon, I also enjoy inspiring newbies to complete the challenge of their first marathon as their coach.
This year I knew that the challenge of simply running a marathon was not enough. I wanted to do something more meaningful. I wanted to make an impact. I wanted to be truly inspired. Enter the New York City Marathon and the Ulman Cancer Fund. The Ulman Cancer Fund has taken on the challenge of partnering with, supporting, and inspiring young adults as they battle cancer.
I'm in the final stretch of training, and I need your help! I'm committed to running 26.2 miles -- and I would be super grateful and honored if you would be a part of my team by making a donation. Any amount you can donate is SO HELPFUL. Know that your donation is both tax deductible and makes a REAL difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.
Helping cancer survivors - change their identities to that of an athlete. Thank you SOOOO much for your support as I challenge and inspire this year!

The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults changes lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship.
With your support, The Ulman Cancer Fund is able to provide multiple support services and resources for the young adult cancer community, including:
Cancer to 5K - A free, progressive, 12-week run/walk program designed to reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity.
Helping Others Fight - A volunteer program that provides basic services – such as transportation to and from treatment, yard work, home repairs, delivery of chemo care bags – to local cancer patients and their families so they can focus their energy on their battle with cancer and their well-being.
Patient Navigation - A free program - onsite at cancer centers and remote - that ensures no young adult ever faces cancer alone. We provide one-on-one personal support and resources to young adults and their families to help them manage the cancer experience and long-term cancer survival.
Scholarships - A financial assistance program to help young adults continue their education after being affected by cancer through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.
Thank you for making these programs and our mission possible.
