THE STORY:

I have set a personal goal to run 500 miles in 180 days to benefit a hero of mine, Dr. Scott Mackler. Scott has ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and has been featured on CBS's 60 Minutes for his courage and helping to pioneer technology to aid those that have this disease.

The picture is of Scott and I when he was my soccer coach while growing up. We had some great times and he taught me a lot about life, persistance, and always striving to do your best. 

What is ALS you may ask? According to the ALS Association's website, ALS is, "Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed."

I have made it a goal to do my part by running 500 Miles in 180 days. This is roughly equivalent to the distance between Munich, Germany and Paris, France (or NYC to Detroit). Please help me to achieve my goal and help stop this terrible disease!

If you want to be inspired and learn more about the technology being pioneered, check out this 60 Minutes Video featuring Scott!
