A MESSAGE FROM Tamara Takes on Chicago!
I'm a native of Richmond,VA and I'm constantly surprised with each race I complete – after vowing to “never run unless being chased” for years. My first race was a small 5K that I trained for using the Couch to 5K app in 2012. While thinking that would be the farthest I'd ever run, I continued my journey with more 5Ks, a 10K, and my first half marathon in 2014. I completed my sixth half marathon, and my personal best, in 2023 at the Richmond Half Marathon. The Chicago Marathon will be my first time completing 26.2 miles.

I run with Black Girls Run Richmond as well as Prolyfyck Run Creww. I love the community and support that comes when running with a group. When I'm not running, I enjoy supporting women in reaching their financial goals as the Founder and Visionary of Good Soil Education. I'm an active member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., the Junior League, and a board member of the Virginia African American Advisory Board.

On behalf of the Black Girls RUN! Foundation and our Board of Directors, we would like to thank you for your contribution to our organization. Since our founding in 2018, the Black Girls RUN! Foundation has been helping women get healthier and more active through the sport of running. We have provided training programs, nutritious snacks, clothing and shoe stipends and other resources to help equip and empower women to start on the right path to be a better version of themselves and adopt a healthy and active lifestyle. Because of your generous donation, we are able to continue programs like this and provide our local communities with the resources they need.
