A MESSAGE FROM Fay's Fundraising Page

"I'm originally from Minnesota but have lived in Rockaway with my Partner Pat for going on four years. Pat passed in a sudden hiking accident last winter, and I began running to honor his love for the sport (as an alumni runner for William and Mary) and to physically work with my daily grief. Last fall, I ran my first marathon. The challenge of training for better times and longer distances keeps me going and lets me focus on what's important- helping the people around me. The opportunities for civic engagement and education RISE brings to the Rockaways help further the natural integrity of our community. Because of their meaningful work, I am honored to represent and help raise funds for RISE and our coastal Rockaway home in the 2023 United Airlines Half Marathon."
