Hi everyone! I’m a sort-of-recent grad from the Uni of Richmond, VA. I like to be outside, travel, and learn, and most of all I love to run. If I had my way I’d be outside all day long, running, hiking, jumping, or even just sitting.
I’m currently running coast to coast to raise funds for the Boys & Girls Clubs, locally and nationally! I’m running 25 miles a day, 6 days a week, for 5 and a half months. I’m took off in early January from sunshiney Huntington Beach in Southern California, and will finish in Charleston, SC, in late June. I’m running solo, sans support vehicle, and pushing all my supplies in a stroller (food, camping gear, spare clothes, water etc) My goal is to raise $25,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs, inspire kids to chase down their dreams, and have one heck of an adventure across the country. While I’m running I am continuing to raise money and working on sponsorships from companies whose products and/or services I’ll need (sports outfitters, hotels, Gatorade etc)
I still need lots of help to reach the fundraising goal! There are two different ways to help:_ You can make a contribution online towards my gear, food, lodging, etc. If you prefer to send a check, you can it to Zoe Romano, PO Box 1079, zip 04104-1079.
You can also choose to donate directly to the clubs online. Choose between the national organization (Boys & Girls Clubs of America), or the local Clubs of Southern Maine listed on the menu to the right.
If you’d like to send a check, please email me at email@example.com, or call me at 207.233.5292
I have received lots of help from so many generous people already, and I continue to meet more and more amazing people everyday. I want to stay connected with all of them, and my friends and family back home, so that’s why I’ve created this blog. Thank you for reading! : )
