Welcome to My Personal Page
As a member of MDA Team Momentum, I’m dedicating my miles, muscles and personal finish line to helping kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.
Every step I take while training for and racing in the half marathon/marathon will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us.
This is where you come in. Your donation will help save and improve the lives of individuals with muscular dystrophy and the families who love them. Thanks in part to MDA Team Momentum participants and donors, MDA anticipates more new treatments in development during the next five years than in the previous five decades combined. Let’s keep and build this momentum. Please consider making a donation to support me in my upcoming race today. Thank you in advance for your support!

Hello Everyone! First things first. I want to thank all of my awesome supporters as we work hard to make a difference in the lives of those who have MD. MD has been a part of our daily lives since our daughter was diagnosed with early onset LGMD2i thirteen years ago. We went through the terror of the unknown, the cold reality of a diagnosis and the process of learning how to live with MD. It has been a rocky road for all of us. I learned about team momentum the year our daughter suffered a significant set back she wasn't guaranteed to recover from. Let me tell you, being the parent of a child with a degenerative disease often leaves one feeling helpless, the urge to do something is strong. Team momentum gave me that needed opportunity to 'actively' do something to help better the lives of people living with MD. By running and raising money I became an active part of making sure one more child had the opportunity to go to MDA Camp for one week, get just a bit closer to funding a research study or ensuring that a family would have access to much needed medical equipment that they couldn't otherwise afford. Please join me in my mission to make a muscle and make the difference. I will do the training, run the miles and share the journey. You can support this effort through encouragement, cheers, prayers and donations. We cannot do this without you. Make a muscle and make a difference.
