The Elm Project!

Family, friends, friends of friends, and randos who somehow discovered this page:

For those of you who know me well, you know I appreciate and enjoy many things in life: food, traveling, banter, sports, an occasional salami sandwich and cannoli (yes, I realize I already said food but my love for cuisine cannot be overstated).

Conversely, you also know my disdain for running-outside or on a treadmill. I absolutely hate everything about it-but, one thing that eclipses my hatred for running is my love for The Elm Project, an incredible non-profit that provides mentorship and support to urban youth infected/affected with HIV and Sickle Cell Disease, with which I have had the pleasure of volunteering for over the past decade (For more information, visit 

The Elm Project has and continues to have an invaluable impact on thousands of these childrens lives as they deal with the many medical and non-medical challenges that many youth face during this already difficult stage of life. 

Although I hate hate hate running, it is the least I can do to raise money for an incredibly worth cause that has had such a far-reaching impact on so many children. 

Thanks so much for your donations and please pray for me (that I can finish this half-marathon that is..).
