Hi! My name is Nina DeCosmo and I am beyond excited to once again be a part of the Ryan’s Run.

My journey with Ryan’s Ryan began in 2017. I kind of liked running and figured “hey why not try and run the NYC marathon.” What began as a whim turned into one of the best experiences of my life due to Allied Services, my ambassador Barbara Romanasky, the people I met along the way and Marathon day (who knew 26 miles could be fun!) .

I had the pleasure of meeting Barbara Romanansky, a patient at Allied Services. Barbara had just underwent bypass surgery to remove a blood clot from her right leg. Following surgery, she suffered compartment syndrome and nerve damage. Ultimately, Barbara’s leg was amputated above the knee. Today, due to Barbara’s determination, hard work, and the support of Allied, Barbara is back enjoying her outdoor adventures which include kayaking, gardening, and spending time with her pups!

Allied Services is an unbelievable organization that our area is blessed to have. The monies raised through Ryan’s Run help contribute to Allied’s continued success. As I take on the New York City Marathon in November please join me in supporting this cause and children and adults at Allied Services.
