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.
My older brother Danny Kollasch has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. I have helped to care for Danny ever since I was old enough to help him. I found inspiration to sign up for the 2019 Chicago Marathon when some negative results came back from his last doctor's appointment. This gave me the drive to really dedicate my time and effort towards helping the MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us. Each time I run while training for this marathon, I am doing it for Danny and for all those who can't.
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!
