Thank you for visiting my fundraising page for Team HFOT in the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!
I have committed to raising funds and awareness for Homes For Our Troops, a Massachusetts-based nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.
I'm also running to honor my dad, a Vietnam veteran, who recently suffered a major stroke that caused paralysis of his right side. As we undertook renovating our house in preparation for his homecoming, I learned firsthand the importance of handicap accessible homes. This accessibility, in the form of wheelchair ramps and other special adaptations, restores invaluable freedom and agency to injured individuals. A former marathoner himself, and lifelong advocate for fair treatment of veterans, I'm so grateful to have him cheering me on.
Thank you so much for your support!
