Hello, and welcome to My Personal Page!
As most of you know, running has been a part of who I am for more than half of my life. I've done hundreds of races over the years, but I have yet to run a marathon. So when I decided to finally make the leap and run my first marathon, I thought what better than to dedicate it to something bigger than myself and help others along the way! To do this, I joined the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Team Momentum. As a member of Team Momentum, my training, muscles and personal finish line will be dedicated to helping kids and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and other related muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger.
My grandfather passed away from ALS only a couple of months before my oldest brother was born, so this is a cause that hits close to home. Every step I take while training for and racing in the marathon will help MDA fund groundbreaking research to accelerate treatments and cures and provide care and support for families who are counting on us. Thanks in part to MDA Team Momentum participants and donors, the 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.
If you are able, please consider making a donation to support me and the MDA. Your donation will help save and improve the lives of individuals and families impacted by neuromuscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy or ALS. Myself and the individuals impacted by neuromuscular diseases thank you for your support!
