Annie Correll - NAMI-NYC

Annie Correll

This will be my second marathon, and my second NYC Marathon! I am a PhD candidate in Art History at NYU, working on my own research and teaching art history to undergraduates. My love for running was inspired by my dad, who was my grade school track coach and my biggest fan. When I continued running in high school and college, he was at every cross country and track meet cheering me on. I am running this race in his honor, after losing him to suicide in 2020. I am raising money for NAMI-NYC in order to not only help individuals with mental illness, but their families, as well. In addition to helping those struggling with mental health in my community, my goal this time around will be to achieve a Boston Marathon qualifying time!
