Welcome to my fundraising page!

I'm excited to be a part of this great cause that I hold so close to my heart! This will be my 9th year walking in honor of my cousin Marilyn Castillo. I also walk in honor of my best friend Luis, those still fighting and the ones that are no longer with us. Once again, I have set my goal to 2K and I know with your support I can not only reach it but surpass it.

Thank you in advance!
