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 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.

If you are interested in helping me raise awareness for Dyslexia by running the World Marathon Challenge, I'd love your support in any of these 3 ways:
I'm sharing my story on social media and I want to connect with you! Follow me, but more importantly, TALK to me! Are you a runner too? Do you know someone who is challenged with dyslexia? Are you an educator? Message me about it! Share my story with your network, because you never know the challenges that others are facing. #untileveryonecanread
Did you know that it costs $50,000 to run the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days)?
Your contribution towards race costs will allow me to show others that dyslexia is not a limiting factor.
I'm committing to match the cost of the World Marathon Challenge ($50,000) in donations for the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).
Your donation enables the IDA to help create a better future for every child and adult who struggles with dyslexia and other reading difficulties…because reading changes lives!
