My name is Sarah and I grew up in the Boston area, where I currently work as a healthcare attorney. I am very excited to be running the 2022 NYC Marathon with NAMI-NYC. My cousin died by suicide nine years ago, after a long struggle with mental health conditions. Watching her, I came to understand the real and present need to increase access to, and availability of, mental health resources. I am therefore very excited to work with NAMI-NYC, as I truly believe that NAMI’s Helpline, peer-led support groups, educational courses, and other resources can save and improve lives.
