From: West Roxbury, MA

What I do for a living: Fundraiser for Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston

Why I choose to run Boston with Herren Project:
I choose to run with Herren Project because we all have a role to play in supporting those who are struggling and preventing further disease. The pandemic exacerbated this public health crisis in many ways, and Herren Project never wavered from fulfilling their mission and finding innovative ways to care for more people. It’s always been a dream of mine to run Boston, and I am honored to support Herren Project’s impact along the way.

What I do for fun (besides running and helping others!):
In my downtime I love to cook, practice yoga, explore parks, and spend time with good people.

What I’m most proud of:
It’s very cheesy, but I would say living my life in an impactful, thoughtful way. I feel driven to make a difference in my daily life, and participating as a charity runner is another way I can combine my passions of running and helping my community.
