BENEFITING: Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc.

EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012

EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012

THE STORY:

Hi Friends and Family,

As many of you know, I have been training for the LA Marathon. Although this has been a dream of mine for years, it has become a reality solely due to the inspiration of one person...

On January 2, 2011, my whole world turned upside down when I received the news that one of my best friends, Trevon Moore, had lost a lifelong battle against sickle cell disease. Trevon's smile and laughter could brighten up any room. Since childhood, he taught me what true strength is and, no matter how tough times can get, to just keep smiling. There has not been one day that has passed that I don't think of Trevon and all of the beautiful memories we shared: laughs, smiles, tears, ice cream runs, hospital visits, late night texts, eating at The Loft, dancing to MJ and so much more.

In an attempt to keep Trevon's spirit strong and to "run down a dream," Greg, Ricci, Bev and I committed to running the 2012 LA Marathon in support of the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America. Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that is caused by an abnormal type of hemoglobin (oxygen-carrying protein inside red blood cells). It affects millions of people throughout the world, and approximately 90,000-100,000 Americans.

In a time when everyone has their own causes, I know it's hard to support them all. I only ask that you opt out of that fancy caffeinated morning beverage for one week and contribute to a cause near and dear to my heart: helping raise awareness and funding to find a cure for sickle cell disease. If that's not possible, then I ask you to donate blood at your local blood bank. And if that also is not possible, please at a minimum take a moment to smile; and keep smiling no matter how hard times may get, just like Trevon always did.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and checking out my page. I GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT!
