My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

A few years ago, I was challenged as a friend in ways I never knew possible. We were young girls in our mid-twenties, planning our futures and exploring the world. Never could I have imagined my best friend losing her father to prostate cancer. Devastation doesn’t even begin to describe her experience. The person whom I loved, adored and leaned on for strength suddenly needed me in ways she hadn’t before. I needed to step up; it was my turn to be her strength. But how do you support your friend in crisis around a reality you’ve never had? I turned to Movember to educate myself through the stories and experiences of men and their families who have battled cancer and mental health, including the stigma surrounding both. Through these stories I was given a small window of understanding into what my friend may be experiencing. Movember’s principle of making information and knowledge accessible changed my ability to support friend in need. Movember matters—it’s not just about education, awareness and prevention, but authentic dialogue around damn hard issues.

That friend and I were supposed to be running The 2020 New York City Marathon together, in honor of her father for Movember. But, we make plans and God laughs. With so much delayed and post-poned from COVID-19 - my friend will now stand as a bridesmaid in her best friend's wedding on the weekend of the race. So now, I will run - for myself and for my friend but most importantly, for Big Dave.

Join me in supporting Movember. Join me in supporting my friend and her father. For Movember, I RUN!
