Good Morning Running Community!
Over the past (almost) year, We Are NYC Running Club has grown tremendously and with over 450 active members worldwide sometimes it’s hard to keep track of who is up to what. So to assist with keeping up to date with our members, we’ve decided that starting in 2019, we would introduce one outstanding member per week to showcase who they are and why they are such a great teammate.
It is our honor and privilege to introduce the first ever Member Spotlight: Cheryl F. (IG: @cfriscia).
Cheryl has been such a supportive and compassionate member from the day she joined the club. She puts 110% into everything she does whether it’s encouraging her teammates during group runs or organizing a Cross Fit class for the club. Cheryl is committed to taking We Are NYC Running Club to the next level.
Cheryl is a survivor of stage 3 kidney disease. With her kidneys failing in 2014, she was hospitalized and underwent two years of intense treatment. While she avoided a transplant, she has come back to full health thanks in part to a complete diet change and lots of exercise. In April she celebrated her full recovery with our running club by running the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K.
With the arrival of her first grandchild and watching her son get married, Cheryl experienced it all this past year! She capped off a triumphant year by running and completing her first marathon, the TCS NYC Marathon, and her teammates were there cheering her on all across Manhattan!
When Cheryl sets goals, she hits them! Check out some highlights on Cheryl and hear what other members had to say about her character and impact she’s had on the club! We can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store for you, Cheryl! Thank you for being the personable, driven, and kind member that you are!
