“Sad, I will not be doing First Strides this fall. Yet, excited to be training for my 4th Half Marathon . This program and the volunteers are amazing. Thankful to have been part of it!!! Thank you, for volunteering to help so many women to make a positive change in their life. The program had a major impact on my life!!.” – Trish H
