My Personal Fundraising Page

Thank you for supporting the students of Naperville 203!

I have never run a half marathon in my life, I actually REALLY dislike running long distances, but when our school needed to raise funds for an inclusive playground and I saw how few people had signed up to help raise the friend Katie talked me into stepping up with her for our kids school!

I am fundraising for a very special cause.  One of the first graders in our school was born with SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) - Diseases | Muscular Dystrophy Association (  This student uses a wheelchair, and the playground at our elementary school is not very accessible.  We are raising funds to have an inclusive merry go round installed.  This piece of equipment is not only fun for all children, but this student can use it without assistance and alongside her friends.  It will benefit everyone in our community for years to come.  The funds raised by our school through team NEF will come directly back to our school, and our principal has committed to putting those funds towards the merry go round project.  Any contributions, no matter how small, will be very much appreciated.

Parents, Naperville community members, Therapy friends: I’m stepping up to do something I hate (1. Running 2. Asking people for money) for the can step up and do something hard too! (Donating your ?) There has never been a time I was more grateful for our health and ability to undertake such a thing.

Help support our inclusive playground and say a prayer I don’t die in this half marathon! ?
