My name is Christine Malloy and my husband Daniel and I are the founders of Live Run Give LLC. I started organizing events when I was 5 years old alongside my father Carlos. As a devoted Elk and philanthropist, my childhood weekends were spent cooking, setting up tables, and organizing large scale events. My parents always encouraged us get involved with their charity work.
After losing 3 matriarchs of my family to breast cancer before the age of 23, I had decided to take up charity cycling and rode for 10 years in the Young Survival Coalition’s Tour de Pink. I volunteered for YSC, helping to enhance the experience for riders and mentoring new cyclists. I became one of the captains of the largest cycling team raising over 100K under our tri-captain leadership.
By 2018, we organized our first race and hosted over 760 participants in the Taco Trot 5K. With the help of my best friend and mentor Lynette, I gained the experience and confidence to start organizing more fun, food-themed events.
On May 5th 2021, my best friend Lynette ended her long battle with stage 4 breast cancer. She was 43 years old. She was my biggest supporter and cheerleader. She believed in what Live Run Give LLC does and every race is in her honor.
I am a mother of 2 beautiful and amazing children, a Spanish teacher to over 200 students and I have been married for over 17 years! In my spare time, I love to be with my family and my zoo. I have 3 bunnies, 13 or so chickens, and an amazing 55 lb lap dog.
My name is Dan Malloy and I love to run – a lot. My passion for running started when I was 26. I started running 2-3 miles, then I went to 6-7 miles, and somewhere between then and now, I have run over a dozen marathons and ultra-marathons.
I was in the Navy for 5 years where I was a Gas Turbine Technician. I have travelled all around to world to over a dozen different countries. My favorite thing to do is try new foods in the places I visit.
On Race Day, you can find me checking the safety on the course, adding last minute markers, and ensuring our runners have the best experience.
I love history, podcasts, and climbing mountains in my spare time.
