Running for Stars

As an avid runner over the past decade, I have always ran to meet my own personal fitness goals. During a run in early November, I decided that it was time to run for something more important than my own goals. During this run, I was wearing my T-shirt from last years "First Responders Run". It reminded me of crossing the finish line and getting my medal from a Stars Air Ambulance paramedic. Stars seemed the like the perfect organization to run for.

I am currently training to run my first two full marathons in 2021 (Queen City Marathon and New York City Marathon). From November 1, 2020 until I cross the finish line in Central Park on November 7, 2021, I will donate one dollar to Stars Air Ambulance for every kilometer I run. My ask is that my friends and family match my donations, dollar for dollar. I am expecting to run close to 2,000 KM during training, meaning my fundraising goal is $4,000. 

My inspiration for choosing Stars Air Ambulance is because my friend, Jon Antal, has been a Stars Paramedic for much of his career. Knowing Jon, I've learned that first responders deal with situations that most of us could never imagine - and Stars crew members respond to some of the greatest challenges imaginable. Countless lives have been saved thanks to the ability of Stars to quickly get to isolated or difficult to reach locations, and get patients access to critical care quickly. 

I'll provide updates on the number of kilometers logged each month, and will do a call for donations every three months. The first month is in the books with 140.6 KM ran. I hope you will join me in this journey over the next year!
