Marilena Hatoupis


 

I've always wanted to know what I'm made of as a runner - can I go the distance or am I just a sprinter? Running a marathon is a test of perseverance and persistence. I'm sure I'll hit quite a few hurdles along the way but when I run out of steam I'll remember that's I'm not just running for myself but for the ideals that CDI encompasses and that for sure will keep me going.

 

Dominique Gagne


 

I'm a freelance jazz flutist, pianist, composer and educator. I'm running for Haiti because I play piano in Haitian guitarist Monvelyno Alexis' band, Kod Ak Po. I was introduced to the work of CDI while playing at CDI-sponsored fundraisers in the city. When I signed up for the Philadelphia Marathon, I knew right away that I wanted to run for CDI/Haiti.
