10 for 10 – Running for School No. 5

Happy New Year to you all! I hope this new year brings much joy and love to you and your loved ones! ❤

For me, 2017 will be a lot similar to 2015 & 2016 years. It will have a lot running and efforts focused towards raising more money for schools.

I started my journey 2 years ago and it’s been extraordinary so far.
I was able to raise money and fund 4 schools in 4 developing countries. Last November, the run2buildschools team came back from Nepal where it built the foundation of our 1st school. This year we are going to Senegal to build another school. And we already raised the money for schools in Nicaragua and Malawi!
Thank you so much to my family, friends and donors for helping impact lives and make my dream come true. I could NEVER do it without your support and love. Thank you! ❤

This is my third year of running for kids, schools and education. ❤
I decided to run 10 marathons and ask that you please consider donating $10 for each marathon. Therefore, this year’s campaign is called 10 for 10! 🙂 
My dream is to raise $30,000 and be able to fund our 5th school. If 300 people donate $100 each for my 10 marathons I will be running this year, we will raise $30,000!!! I know we can do it! Please share my story, my dream and help me raise more money for kids and schools! I am forever grateful for your help, kindness and love. ❤

Here are my 2017 races:

I worked so hard to schedule my races for this year. Thank you so much to my manager, Josy, and to my coworker, Jessica, for their support and understanding, and to everybody else for your love and donations.

I will be spending my vacation days running marathons in more states and different places around the World!

Here is my schedule for this year:

  1. Jan 15Louisiana Marathon, Louisiana, LA

    (training for Antarctica, April 2018 – part of the 7/7 journey)

By the end of this year, I will have run marathons in 13 states in the United States, 6 countries and 4 continents. My hardest two marathons will be the Great Wall of China, which is part of my 7 marathons on 7 continents journey, and the Willow Winter Solstice Marathon. The weather in Alaska will be around -20 degrees C, which will prepare me for the Antarctica marathon in spring 2018.

I am excited and so HapPy, my friends! My resolution for this year is to continue my blessings, follow my heart and pursue my dreams. This “life recipe” has served me very well in the last couple of years.

Thank you again and I wish you all A Very Happy New Year! ❤ ❤ ❤
