Running for Hope

Good Samaritans of Garland

A gift of hope

Please help me to bring hope and smiles to those who are passing through difficult situations.

In collaboration with the Good Samaritans of Garland, I am looking for kind people who want to sponsor one of the 26 miles that I will be running in the MetroPCs Dallas Marathon.

The sponsorship is to buy winter gifts (jacket, gloves and hat) to help individuals or families in need.

The Gift

The total cost of this gift is $27.56 with tax included. It includes a bubble Jacket for $21.96, a beanie hat for $2.00 and two pairs of gloves for $1.50.

Who I am

My name is Diana Montgomery. I have been an athlete all my life and sports are definitely my hobby. I played basketball for my beautiful country, Colombia, and after my arrival to the United States, I played college basketball. I have been running only for 3 years, but I have participated in 26 different events such as 5K, half marathons and many triathlons. I mostly run by myself, but now my 7 year old dauther is running with me.

I have passed through many tough times in my life, but God blessed me then with family and friends who helped me through all of them. Now, I am convinced that God is calling me to be that small light of hope to those who need it, just like those people in the past were for me. Therefore, I decided to put my love for running to work for others.
