"I never thought in my wildest dreams I would get be the America record-holder for the 50K…and that I would get to do what I love and pursue my passions, chase my dreams [and] get to run full-time.
"But the truth is that anyone can set records, anyone can win races; but few years go by, and those records are broken, and someone else is on the podium. But to be able to use my platform and use this opportunity to invest in a child's life -- it's amazing [and] it leaves a lasting legacy, one that will outlive my career and outlive my life, and that's what makes child sponsorship so special."
