Challenge Accepted! Running Over 120 km to Support Teach for Bulgaria

On the first Wednesday of June, runners from around the world lace up and get out, inspiring others to join the global running community. Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It’s also a day when runners like me share the reasons why they run.

Over the next 4 months, I’ve committed to challenge myself with a cause and will run over 120 km to raise money for Zaedno v chas / Teach For Bulgaria which places teachers in Bulgarian classrooms where they are most needed!

Every donation matters when it comes to positive change in education. You can help, too!

On Global Running Day, I logged 15 km in preparation for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and in support of this organization.

Please join me today by donating to my GlobalGiving fundraiser to provide every child in Bulgaria with equal access to quality education:

Everyone is more than welcome to support me in my charitable endeavor by donating to my GlobalGiving campaign.

Prepping for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2019

Prepping for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2019 in my hometown of Septemvri, Bulgaria. I could barely run two loops here back in high school.

Operation Thank a Veteran – The Mayor’s Office of Veterans Services

Volunteered at “Operation Thank a Veteran” last Saturday with Boston Rotaract and the Downtown Boston Rotary Club.

Engaged with veterans who served in the United States military to thank them for their service and provide them with information on resources available to them and their families from the City of Boston.

Got to meet Marty Walsh, the 54th Mayor of Boston!

Boston is home to more than 22,000 veterans. So far, the Mayor’s Office of Veterans Service has reached out to more than 3,000 veterans. They need volunteers to help them engage former service members.

United Airlines NYC Half

Running the United Airlines NYC Half was on my bucket list for this year. Today I got to cross it off that list.

Thanks to Rotaract Club of Manhattan NYC and the NY Chinatown Rotary Club for giving me a spot on the CaringKind – The Heart of Alzheimer’s Caregiving Athletes To End Alzheimer’s team.

We were able to raise a little less than $50,000 for Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving.

NYCRUNS Queens Half Marathon next!

Full speed ahead to running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in October! Will be fundraising for an awesome Bulgarian organization!

Our Athletes To End Alzheimer’s team has raised a total of $44,116! That’s tremendous – thanks to everyone who supported the cause!
