Lifelong Hobby

"CARA has given me a lifelong hobby. I've made tons of running buddies of all ages. I even inspired my big brother to run his first half marathon and hopefully we will run NYC together soon. Last year, I spent four and a half months waking up every Sunday morning to lead runners for marathon training and I plan on doing it again this year! I’m so grateful for the opportunities that CARA offers new and seasoned runners. It’s an awesome organization that has changed my life. "
