Ramona Saridakis Bean – 1/2 Marathon 
Sophia Valladares  Full Marathon

Ramona Saridakis Bean

(I'm the one in the neon socks!) I ran my first race at eight years old and still recall how sweet the reward at the end of the physical and mental exercise felt. Since then I've been blessed to run for various causes representing my high schools and University of Florida, and with teams like Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in 2009.  It is an honor to participate in the IOCC's Race to Respond program by running the half marathon at the Palm Beaches Run Fest this December 8th in order to raise funds for the humanitarian and disaster relief programs conducted worldwide – most recently in hotspots like Syria. Thank you for considering a donation!

Sophia Valladares 

My family and I belong to St. Mark Greek Orthodox Church in Boca Raton, Florida. I started running several years ago after my second daughter was born. The 6:00 A.M. runs were invigorating (and often exhausting), but gave me tremendous peace and quiet time to reflect, focus, pray and be grateful for all the little miracles in life. My first marathon was in January 2012. I'm still not sure how I made it through, but I made a promise to God that day that if I made it over the finish line (without having to be carried) I would never run a race again that didn't somehow contribute to a charity or worthy cause. My second marathon was in support of the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The Palm Beach Marathon will be the first time I can help an organization near and dear to my heart, the IOCC. Please help me support their endeavors to provide for those in need worldwide. Thank you!
