I'm a real athlete, raising money for Athletes for Real Medicine 2012. The first marathon I ever ran (and finished) was in LA in 2010. The upcoming LA Marathon will be my third LA Marathon. The difference this time is that I will be running for a purpose: to raise money to support Real Medicine Foundation. Please help me to reach my goal and donate any amount you'd like to give. My goal is to raise $5000.00 by marathon day.

2012 will be our 3rd year as an official charity for the LA Marathon. Last year Real Medicine Foundation was able to raise over $21,000.00 for projects in 16 different countries including the Japan Relief Efforts. Athletes for Real Medicine strives to bring not only awareness to the work we do but to make a "real" difference by donating 92% of all funds raised directly to their intended projects. Help us to reach our goal for the 2012 LA Marathon by supporting one of our fabulous athletes, or joining us for the journey!
