What is your all-time favorite movie and why?
All time favorite movie is 50 First Dates. It's funny but yet a love story. I just love how Adam Sandler's character never gives up hope on Drew Barrymore's character, even though she has lost her short term memory. The end makes me cry everytime I see it. In fact, the closing song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakakaiwiwo is my favorite too. My son has told me that when he gets married, we will dance to that as mother/son.
Do you have a favorite charity? What is it / why?
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Back in 2008 I started training for my first marathon. I trained and fundraised with them through Team in Training. At the time, my dear friend's father was fighting leukemia and it was so inspiring to run for a cause. When you cannot push anymore, think of those that cannot. Since 2008, I have raised over $15,000 for LLS through their program and I became a run coach with them as well. It is such an amazing organization.
