*Racing for Relief* Helping Hurricane Sandy victims





People from all over have been asking how they can help the east
coast in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Up until yesterday I was at a loss
of what to tell them, thankfully my friend Jenn of Fit Appetit
reached out to me suggesting we put together a virtual race to raise
money for those affected. I was immediately on board and jumped into
action.






I know there are a few of these races popping up but I wanted to use the platform I have here to help as many people as possible.

All proceeds will be going to the American Red Cross
