Running for a Purpose

The real purpose of running isn’t to win a race. It’s to test the limits of the human heart.

When I first started running, it was as a means to deal with everything going on in my life. It was me time. Time to clear my head, and get rid of the frustrations in my life. So when I was signing up for my first half marathon, there was an option to sign up and fundraise for a charity. Because child abuse hits so close to home, and has significant ties to my own running, I decided to sign up to fundraise. There are so many organizations you can raise funds for, and so many different opportunities out there for runners. I figure if I’m going to run anyway, I would like to give it more meaning, than just my own personal triumph. So with that, I hope you will take a look at my fundraising page, and consider donating to the cause. Child abuse is much too prevalent in today’s society. And I would like to do anything I can to contribute to the cause of raising awareness. Thank you!
