I am running in the 2017 Boston marathon on behalf of the Lingzi Foundation on Monday, April 17th. I am hoping to raise $5,000 for the foundation. Please read more about me below and if you would like to contribute toward my run for the Lingzi foundation, click on the donate button below:
I started long distance running more than a decade ago. At that time, I was in bad physical shape and lead an unhealthy lifestyle. Over the years, running has been my daily companion and my health has greatly improved as I discovered the joy in running. I have participated in various long distance races and amateur marathons around China. Even though I am not a competitive runner, I am always glad I have completed these races.
I have known Lingzi’s family for a long time. The tragedy of the event left most of us shocked; disbelief beyond words and heartbroken for the parents. I felt so honored to have the opportunity to participate in the 2017 Boston Marathon on behalf of Lingzi Foundation and to help keep Lingzi’s spirit alive and preserved!
