My name is Melissa Giammichele. I currently live in Indianapolis, IN where I work full time at a commercial real estate company and also dance for the Indiana Pacemates (Pacers). In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and friends and go on long runs.
My family is from New York and it has always been a goal of mine to run the NYC Marathon. This will be my 3rd marathon and 1st NYC Marathon. I am looking forward to this incredible experience and the ability to show my support for the Italian American Sport Foundation.
IASF is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for sports projects that help individuals (women and children in the first instance) to improve their lives and achieve their goals. This foundation aligns with my values, as they believe in the healing power of sports.
Your donation to IASF will help fund scholarships for athletes, organize sports events dedicated to children, and provide courses that teach women specific sports activities to build confidence. Thank you so much for your donation and support!
