Being raised as Roman Catholic, Catholic Charities has always been a part of my life.
As a child I have great memories of my mom bringing clothes and food to our local Catholic Charities in Camden, New Jersey. My mother always emphasized the importance of giving to people less fortunate.
Helping those in need and keeping religion in my life is very important to me.
Catholic Charities is the model for this and because of this I would love to represent Catholic Charities in the New York City marathon and in Archbishop Timothy Dolan’s home city!
