Bobby decided to run for Team ISS-USA because, as a nurse practitioner, he has witnessed the negative long term effects of prolonged family separation on children. He joined Team ISS-USA to support ISS-USA’s continued service to families and children who have been separated by international borders. He is hopeful that, through his support, ISS-USA will be able to connect more families with the services they need.
Allison has always dreamed of running a marathon but always wanted to compete in a way that was larger than just running a marathon for herself. Describing her role as a runner for Team ISS-USA, Allison says, “it is a perfect match because not only am I running in a remarkable race surrounded by incredible humans, I get to help an organization that I feel is truly making a positive impact in the world.”
Sam is partnering with ISS-USA to run his fourth marathon this November. Sam first learned about ISS-USA through his mother’s work on international children’s issues as an Ambassador under Secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry. Sam decides to run for Team ISS-USA because, “As we know from today’s headlines, helping children in difficult circumstances is not just a worthy cause but an imperative of a civilized, caring, and compassionate society.”
