I will be running the 2012 Brooklyn Half Marathon to raise awareness and money for The Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome Children's Research Foundation.
Lesch-Nyhan disease is a rare condition that affects children at a very young age. Children with this disease get kidney stones, they cannot control their muscles, and they develop an irresistible urge to try to hurt themselves. More information about the disease can be found here: http://www.lesch-nyhan.org
Those of you who wish to take advantage of my employer's generosity (matching donation) can make a donation through me rather than directly through CrowdRise.
