IT professional/ Mentor

Personal Interest: To continue to help with mentoring the youth as well as volunteering with different services to help better my community, which is the Strawberry Mansion community. I will also be continuing the motivation to help out all individuals with health and fitness. My Motto “RunThisGame (RTG) This is not a trend but a lifestyle”.

The biggest reason I participated in the Philly Runs Free was due to the ongoing fight I have faced for years; losing my dearest and closest relatives and friends to cancer. My father and hero being the first one that I lost to cancer, as  I took this huge hit in 2007. Shortly after losing my father it was my aunts, a few cousins, and then some friends throughout the years. I have participated in plenty of races to support cancer research in honor of my family and friends. I know finding a cure, helping people grieve through this troublesome time, along with assisting them with emergency financial support will be a great and positive experience which is why I’ve gotten involved with the Philly Runs Free program. I look forward to helping out as many families as possible, but also helping spread the word on how to get other individuals engaged in the cause within my community and the surrounding communities.
