As much fun at Chicago 2016 and 2018 and NYC 2017 marathons were, I decided to take 2019 off of running a full marathon but didn't want to stop running or being involved with fundraising for the MDA. Back in November I entered the NYC Half Marathon lotto on the last day on a whim, and a few weeks later, to my surprise I won!
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!
