Team Minds Matter of NYC
Minds Matter of NYC has been named a Community Charity for the 2013 ING NYC Marathon. Our status as a Community Charity has allowed us to secure numbers for runners who commit to raising funds to support Minds Matter and our students. Our marathon team has hit the ground running, registering with less than two months until the big day. Support Faith Barksdale, Jennifer Do, Jennifer Herr, Tully McGowan, and Justin McMahan in their efforts to ensure the Minds Matter can continue to turn college dreams into reality.
Hello! My name is Jennifer Do and I am brand new to Minds Matter this year. What compelled me to run with the Minds Matter team is my passion for both running and helping others. I've been running since high school and more recently have been signing up for competitive races. I have a half marathon and a handful of 5k/10k races on my running track record (no pun intended). All of these races were in California where I am from, so I am really excited to participate in my first marathon, and first New York event. In the months leading up to this race, I've been able to explore the neighborhoods of New York much more. I find Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Bridge to be my top go-to areas for running, where I can admire the New York skyline. I can’t wait to cross that finish line, which will mark the first of so many goals I wish to pursue!
