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.
