Queens NYC Half Marathon

Ran The Queens NYC Half Marathon yesterday! Beautiful day for a run in Flushing Meadows Corona Park!

My goal is to raise $5,000 for Teach for Bulgaria by the end of October and through the generosity of family, friends and even perfect strangers, I am approaching $2,500.

Small Donations Add Up To BIG Change This August:

This week, GlobalGiving is celebrating the power of the crowd. All donations up to $50 to Teach for Bulgaria’s project are eligible for a 60% match through the August Little by Little Matching Campaign while funds remain, so your giving this week is amplified!
