THE STORY:

Dear Friends: On Sunday, March 20th 2011 I'll be one of over 20,000 runners taking to the streets of LA in the 26th running of the Los Angeles Marathon. This year I will be running not just for myself, but to raise money for a remarkable organization: the Adult Congenital Heart Association--ACHA.

Founded over a decade ago, ACHA is dedicated to improving the quality of life and and extending the lives of adults with congenital heart defects (CHD). ACHA serves and supports the more than one million adults with congenital heart defects, their families and the medical community - working with them to address the unmet needs of the long-term survivors of congenital heart defects through education, outreach, advocacy, and research.

ACHA offers a national conference every two years that is designed to provide patients and families with the latest information in ACHD care and treatment, plus opportunities to network, plan local activities, and have fun. This year, the conference will be held in Los Angeles, and I have had the privilege of helping to coordinate the program.

One of the most incredible things about the conference is the fact that ACHA endeavors to make it accessible to all patients, regardless of income, and this includes providing funding for many who could otherwise not afford to share in such a wondeful experience. Your donation can help ACHA to accomplish this, and many other important projects.

Running a marathon is tough, but living with congenital heart disease can be much tougher. For many of these remarkable individuals life is a marathon, filled with challenges that they will continue to face and overcome long after the race on March 20th is over. With your help, ACHA will be with them (and those who care for them) every step of the way. I thank you for helping them achieve their mission!

Thank you so much!
