BENEFITING: ARTHRITIS NATIONAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Dec 07, 2013
So historically I use to run the Long Beach City Marathon every year & as part raise money for the ANRF (Arthritis National Research Foundation) - last year I raised over $500! This year I'm forgoing Long Beach & instead challenging myself to run 50 miles around Fiesta Island in San Diego, CA in honor of those afflicted with arthritis. Same great charity - different circumstances. Please support me in this endeavor, everything is appreciated (including company during the run!).
I started raising money for arthritis related research back in 2010 when at the time I was dating a girl (18yo at the time) who suffered from it. Before her I was unaware younger people could get arthritis & seeing how arthritis affected her left an indelible impression on me.
UPDATE: My schedule has gotten in the way of an October run so I'm including this fundraiser as part of me running the North Face Endurance Challenge 50 Miler in December! On a positive note that means 2 extra months of fundraising!
