THE STORY:

I am excited to once again accept the challenge of covering 26.2 miles through the five boroughs of New York City, as a member of Athletes to End Alzheimer's, while completing the marathon in honor of my mother Hattie.

When I finished my first marathon in 2013, I thought that was it -- mission accomplished. I had raised nearly $10,000 for an amazing cause while completing a personal goal. However, when I saw that the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon was being held on November 1st, I knew I had to lace up my running shoes one more time. As many of you know, both of my parents will be celebrating their 78th birthdays on this date. What could be more perfect than to honor my parents by running and raising awareness for this terrible disease that has had such a tremendous impact on me and my family. 

In the two short years since I last ran as a member of ATEA, my mother's cognitive abilities have taken a sharp turn for the worse. She is no longer able to be left alone and needs assistance with basic tasks that most of us take for granted. Although there have been some positive reports recently in the news, we are still far from the finish line in beating this devastating disease that affects an estimated 5.3 million Americans.

I hope you'll join me in this effort. I'll do the running if you help with raising awareness and fundraising. I thank you for your support and, together, we can make a difference.
