This actually happened last year... I was asked to participate in a large fundraiser for one of my clients, Allied Services. It's one of their main fundraisers, Ryan’s Run
. When I agreed, I committed myself to personally raising funds for children and adults with disabilities as well as running the 2018 NYC Marathon.
So I kicked off my campaign by spreading the word and holding several fundraisers. I also started training hard to complete the marathon. After several months and many miles later, I completed my first marathon on Nov. 4 in the great NYC. Not only was that an accomplishment, but I also raised over $12,800 to help children and adults with disabilities. I am so thankful for the opportunity and the support in changing lives. While it isn’t a debit and credit accomplishment, it was my career that gave me this opportunity.
