Want to keep running towards a cure even after the T.E.A.L. Walk/Run is over? Start a virtual fundraiser benefiting T.E.A.L. for any event you do! That’s what T.E.A.L. supporters Grant, Kim, and Alex did in one of T.E.A.L.’s most successful Virtual Fundraisers ever. They raised $5,589 in memory of Rachel Small, who lost her battle at 21 years old from Ovarian Cancer. Check our their fundraising page and their story here
Tell us a little bit about the day. What was the event like? How was the weather? Have you ran a half marathon before?It was a beautiful day, we were both excited and nervous, Alex, one of our team members dropped out because of an injury. He was the reason we decided to raise funds for the run, so we were disappointed he couldn’t make it. Kim had run marathons before, but when she was much younger. I had never run that far, but I couldn’t back out and let T.E.A.L. down.
Why did you decide to run the Staten Island Half Marathon? The timing was right, it looked like a nice route and it fit our training schedule.
