Our Team

Team Peri

Our Team Peri runners participate in marathons all around the country. Several of our team members run, walk, and crawl in the annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Las Vegas Marathon, TCS New York City Marathon, and the Miami Marathon/Half Marathon alongside our two co-captains, Lori and Peri Finkelstein.

The members of Team Peri have individually raised thousands of dollars throughout our ten years in existence. With the help of our captains, we have been able to raise over $500,000 for Chai Lifeline and have gained national media coverage.

Our fundraising efforts have been recognized by a former MLB player, and current Sports Analyst and baseball trainer, Nelson Figueroa, former HQ Trivia host, Sports Analyst and host of the Change Up on DAZN USA, and proprietor of the Running Late Show, Scott Rogowsky, and Christopher Ulmer from Special Books by Special Kids. Nelson and Chris Ulmer are proud members of Team Peri and have participated in the Miami Half Marathon. This upcoming 2019 season, Scott Rogowsky will be joining our Team as well.

Through a video that was done on Peri and her family, by Special Books by Special Kids, Chris has visually documented the journey of Team Peri when he joined Team Peri in the 2018 Miami Half Marathon.

All of the members of Team Peri come from diverse backgrounds and come together to reach a common goal, to help families all around the United States break barriers that come into their life’s path.
