"I'm running the United Airlines NYC Half Marathon for the BRC this year to raise both money and awareness for New Yorkers in need. Three years after the COVID-19 pandemic began, so many people in this city are still in need of a hand up to get back on their feet. The BRC does so much great work to that end and I'm excited to use this platform to support the BRC mission." support with my feet. BRC is a key partner for the City and State of New York in trying to end street homelessness, and I want to do my part in supporting that goal."
"In March I'll be running the NYC Half Marathon for Team BRC to support their amazing work transforming the lives of so many New Yorkers experiencing homelessness. I have a deep and personal Wesleyan connection with friends who work tirelessly to improve programming and support for those needing to get back on their feet. I am excited to raise awareness of BRC's endeavors through this platform. Thank you in advance for your support"
I am a mother to one son. Art and design are my passions.
As a designer I work to help people, but a lot of the time it isn't enough or not for the people who truly need it. Becoming familiar with BRC and the work they do was inspiring and I am grateful to be given a chance to contribute. I am excited to run this half marathon to help people in need.

"I am proud to run the NYC Half Marathon for Team BRC to raise awareness for individuals experiencing homelessness in the NY community. I was personally introduced to the BRC through my roommate Ross - from his experience over the years, I know that the organization truly makes a meaningful impact on the community it serves. As a New York native, I am excited to use this platform to support BRC’s mission."
