This will be my first marathon! I'm excited and nervous for running this distance. I did not become interested in running until 8 years ago..since then I have run some 5k’s, 10k's, and 5 half marathons! I am surprising myself and am excited to cross a marathon off my list! We became connected with U2FP because my husband has a spinal cord injury, and we support the work of this organization as monthly donors.
Fun fact about Kelsey: After a long run, I crave a banana, chocolate milk, and salted nut roll!
City: Rochester MN
Profession: Teacher (I work with kids Birth-3 who have special needs)
Race Goal: Finish!
Unite 2 Fight Paralysis is proud to be an official charity team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 2019. Team U2FP is a group of passionate, hard working runners and wheelchair racers committed to racing the 26.2 miles and fundraising to advance research towards a cure for spinal cord injury.
The team raised over $125,000 in the past few years. All funds directly support our mission: to cure paralysis through advocacy, education, and support for research. Thank you for your support!
