When I first began running, it was for the purpose of clearing my head after a long day. It gradually took on more meaning. It became a social outlet; when I’m a part of a team or club, I’m part of a strong community. The day of my first high school cross country meet, my grandfather passed away. Having always been my personal cheerleader as well as an active person himself, I decided to race and that I would race not for myself, but for him. I’ve learned, running holds a greater significance that is beyond just for oneself. Through the RRT, I will be running for Alzheimer’s.

Running was a transformative experience for me. It helped me to understand the beauty of early mornings and the focus and hard work it takes in order to achieve a goal. I've met my best friends through running. By embarking on this road trip, and raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's, I hope to spread the sense of community and support that I've recieved by running.

Running is a fundamental part of my everyday life. Over the past 8 years it has honed and shaped both my body and my mind; making me the person I am today. I hope that by road tripping across the country and connecting with runners and non-runners in every state, we can raise a significant sum of money for Alzheimers research.

Running is more than a sport. It's a way of life that brings communities together. Growing up in Boulder, Colorado, I've seen this first hand. Now I want to bring this sense of community and empowerment that running can provide to a larger community at scale. I can't think of a better cause for this project to support. I will providing the technical resources to get RRT moving.
