I am participating in the 2021 Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk: Your Way presented by Hyundai, taking steps toward the ultimate finish line: a world without cancer!
I am walking in memory of the incredible Catherine Malatesta, who is missed so deeply every day. I am also walking in memory of Ara Jizmejian, who shaped my life and countless others in more ways than one. I walk for the millions of lives affected by this horrible disease, and for a brighter future where cancer is a thing of the past.
I choose to walk to fight back. This past year has been challenging in ways I never could have prepared for. I've lost hope and motivation, I've lost people and places I've loved, but I have gained the understanding of truly just how fragile life really is. I choose to use this walk as a journey for myself to honor the fight within each and every human, and to keep the lessons and memories of everyone we have lost ever so strong in our hearts. Cancer is ugly, and together we can finish the fight
