The Thrill of Running & Its Impact

Posted on August 29, 2019 by Catholic Charities Admin  |  Share

Kieran combines his love for running and passion for Catholic Charities as a member of team CCNY. 

My name is Kieran O’Shea I work as a Development Associate for Catholic Charities. I have been training during my lunch hour and on the weekends. This will be my first marathon but I have run a half marathon as well as running on varsity cross country and track during High School at St. Anthony’s in Huntington, New York. 

I continued running throughout college and recently participated in the Brooklyn Half. The competitive aspect is something I have always loved about running, other people are there but it is really a battle between yourself and the course. I am excited to run for Catholic Charities because I know the impact the money I raise will have. I had the pleasure of being a part of the St. Nicholas project last year and saw firsthand the impact this program has on the community. It’s not often we are presented with such a simple opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the members of our community. Please consider joining the team and sponsoring me.

Catholic Charities is responding to the needs of our neighbors during the 
COVID-19 pandemic.
