Hi, my name is Dustin Emerick and I am a graduate from the University of Southern Indiana. While running for the University of Sothern Indiana, I ran Cross Country and Track and was a four-time All American. Since graduation, I've moved onto further my running career and have successfully made the Olympic Trials Qualification standards in the Marathon. Running the Olympic Trials Marathon has always been a dream of mine, and I have finally gotten the opportunity to compete. I am excited to make my marathon debut, but it's going to come at a hefty price. The marathon will take place on February 13, 2016 in Las Angeles, California. That means there are several expensive flights and hotels stays involved. Any help with supporting this dream of mine would be great, and would definitely help ease the financial stress involved. Having a suportive group behind me would mean being able to run and compete at my highest level. Not having as much financial stress regarding the trip would mean being able to truly give this race my all, with a clear mind. I know that Evansville has shown me tremendous support in the past, and have always encouraged me to do my best. I would so deeply appreciate the continued support of this community, and would love an opportunity to make this city proud once again.
