Diana M. Folino

(Community Liaison)

In September 2016, I became the first recipient to be blessed with the loving support and prayers from those involved in Feel the Love 5k & St. Augustine United, Inc.  I was truly touched by how the Community of St. Augustine & surrounding areas stepped up to help to support the funding of my Heart Transplant & on-going medical costs.  In August 2017, my prayers were answered and I was able to receive a new heart.  This simply would be impossible if it wasn’t for all the love and support from family, friends, & such an amazing community…  And now it’s my turn to give back in any way that I can for those that are in need – just as I was not too long ago!  I am extremely excited about being a part of Feel the Love 5k – St. Augustine United, Inc. and look forward to helping such a wonderful community!

Kristen Billyer

If there is a race within a 100 mile radius, Kristen will run it.
