UPDATE: I've reached my original fundraising goal of $650! Can you help me reach the stretch goal of $1,000? To sweeten the pot, I will donate $1 to match the total number of donors. 30 donors = $30.


Thanks for visiting my page!  Like the field of public health, my running story is one of continuously redefining what is possible. When I entered UCLA in 2012, I was lucky if I could finish a mile in less than 10 minutes. From that humble beginning, I started regularly exercising for the first time in my life and gradually worked my way up to today, where I've finished multiple marathons, done the equivalent of running from LA to Detroit and burned over 250,000 calories - that's 125 days worth of food!


My favorite race? Running last year's LA Marathon with Team FSPH, setting a personal record while raising money for the school that jumpstarted my career! Even before crossing the finish line, I knew that I would be back.



Every penny will go towards giving current students the opportunity to participate in PAID summer fieldwork, allowing them to focus on putting theory to practice in the real world instead of choosing between projects based on affordability. In the past, students have worked throughout the country and around the world. Plus, 100% of your donation is tax deductible!



This will be my 14th race overall, so how does $14 sound like? On the other hand, a marathon is 26.2 miles. How about a dollar for every mile with $26.20?


THANK YOU so much for much for your support!
