Let's meet Theresa!
Fragoso is the Executive Director of Operations and Programs at CEF. When asked
of her fondest CEF memory, Theresa answered, “I’ve been with CEF for 20 years,
so I have had many amazing moments and humbling experiences as well. I will say
this, that every time I get on the campus of one of our Catholic schools, it’s
always a wonderful experience. Meeting the students and their parents are what
helps keep me grounded and focused on our mission. I absolutely love it!
We asked her how long she had been running for, and she delighted us with, “I
don’t run. I’m not a jogger and I can’t believe I just signed up for the LA
marathon!” Theresa absolutely LOVES to dance and says “I’m not that good, but I
don’t care. If the music can get my toes tappin’, I’ll get up and dance!” CEF
asked how Theresa will be training for the Los Angeles Marathon especially with
such a short amount of time to prepare to even finish the race, and she said,
“I will be working on building strength and endurance simultaneously by walking
and jogging hills near my home, and running stairs at the local city college
track. Of course, I’ll also need to lay off the tamales and pan dulce this
Christmas too and trade it in for kale!” Theresa’s goal this
year is to finish with a little breath still left to walk to the shuttle!
“Actually, to finish with a huge smile and a feeling of
accomplishment--personally and for CEF” Theresa adds. A two-part made for TV
bio film about the athlete, Jesse Owens, who won four gold medals for track &
field during the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, Germany is Theresa’s favorite
running movie. Theresa is running for the 10,000 children CEF is
supporting this year and for the potential students that CEF can give access to
a Catholic school education next year!
