Why 20 marathons in 2020?

image142

To run a marathon requires a lot of commitment, hard work, dedication, and emotional and physical challenge, but that is nothing compared to the challenge a child born with brain hypoxia or HIV-AIDS has to overcome. The reason why I decided to run 20 marathons by the end of 2020 is to be able to raise funds to help children in need, especially those who have been born with these conditions.


Children born with brain hypoxia may require physical therapy or special care. In some cases children can be incorporated into society and have a better quality of life.


Thanks to nonprofit organizations like Fundacion Innonces, which support children that have been born with HIV-AIDS, but also prevent Mother-to-Child transmission. In the majority of cases, mothers in this program give birth to healthy children.


With your help, we can provide hope and bring smile to the faces of these little ones.

NYC Marathon

The 20 in 2020 challenge started with the biggest marathon in the world and one of the world marathon majors, the NYC Marathon.

With more than 53,000 runners crossing the finish line I feel so honor to be one of those runners, while helping raise funds for Team for kids.

I always run with Vicky in my heart, who is my niece who was born with brain hypoxia, this race I also ran to honor a special young man Austin who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Texas Marathon

On Jan 1 2019 I struggled to walk just 1 mile as part of my recovery, from a surgery done on December 2018. 

That same day I set a goal to run a marathon a year later, and what's better way to do it while raising funds for children.


One step at a time!
