Leona Runs A Marathon

Categories Blog


I can hardly believe it as I type it but I am officially running the NYC Marathon on November 1, 2020! For my non-running friends that is 26.2 miles through all 5 boroughs in NYC starting in Staten Island and ending in Central Park. I know this is going to be the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I know that I am going to struggle and it is going to be tough physically and mentally. However, I will not be running it alone. I will be running it with The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. I will be running and raising money to support children and families who are seriously ill. I know growing up camp had a huge impact on my life, and I know I would not be the person I am without the camps that I went to. This camp allows children to experience camp and a unique form of healing when they otherwise would not be able to go.

I would appreciate all the financial support that you can assist with, however above the financial aspect, I am asking for your help when the training gets tough. I am asking for your encouragement when the miles get long. I am asking for you to believe in me months from now when I am unsure if I will be able to believe in myself. I can not do this alone and I am excited and terrified beyond belief.
