Friends and Family,
It's been five years since running in my first marathon (Marine Corp in Washington, D.C.), and I'm so excited for the opportunity to take this challenge on again in November in NYC!!
The reasons are simple:
- I'll be raising funds and awareness in the ongoing fight to end muscle-related diseases,
- We personally have family and friends who are battling ALS
- I believe in setting and accomplishing goals, and this will be a challenging one
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 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 muscle-related diseases 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 on this momentum. Please consider making a donation to support me in my upcoming race today. Thank you in advance for your support!
