World Marathon Challenge Dream

$15,353 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 66 people in 5 months

I'm raising $50,000 to cover the cost of running the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days) to raise awareness (and additional funds) for the International Dyslexia Foundation.  

Why? Because at the age of five I was diagnosed with Dyslexia and a Sensory Processing Disorder, and with the support of my incredible family and community, I beat the odds.  I graduated from USC and then went on to earn two Masters degrees.

I kept this part of my life secret for a very long time, afraid that the stigma of a Learning Challenge would alter how people saw me and the opportunities that I'd have.  Now, I'm sharing my story and your support means the world to me.  

Your help in reaching this fundraising goal will allow me to run the World Marathon Challenge and hopefully show others with Dyslexia that it's not a limiting factor.

For more information, check out my website  or (even better) let's talk!
