THE STORY:

Three years ago, I ran the NYC Marathon on behalf of the PKD Foundation.  It would be my first, but not my last.  Since then, I have run 8 marathons and will reach my goal of 10 when I run both Chicago and NYC on behalf of the foundation this Fall.   What an amazing journey it has been so far.  I have experienced great joy in running, and have raised over $35,000 to date for this amazing cause.

As most of you know, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease at the age of 25, less than a year after my Mom found out she had the disease.  As the years have passed, my family has experieced many ups and downs.  My Mom had to endure two brain surgeries from aneurysms,  a kidney transplant and is now battling cancer.  Through it all, her faith has been unwavering.  It is from her that I get the courage fight this disease.  It is from her that I have learned what real strength looks like.  She has been unbelievably positve for her family, and I hope in the years to come, I can do the same for mine.

I will continue to run for PKD as long as I am physically able. I will run because I am hopeful. I will run for my mom who can no longer run herself.  I will run for my children so they never have to know this disease. I will run for every PKD patient and their families. I will run to END PKD once and for all!
