BENEFITING: American Lung Association of Michigan
ORGANIZER: American Lung Association of Michigan
I will be returning to my hometown, Detroit to run the Detroit Free Press Half Marathon in October. I will specifically be running to support one of its charity partners, the American Lung Association of Michigan. I chose ALA, in honor of my late mother, Patsy, who passed away 2 years ago due to COPD.
Many of you may understand, you never truly get over losing a parent, you learn to deal with it. I am very emotional and excited to run this race listening to her favorite Motown music while proudly displaying her name across my bib in her honor.
I am asking for donations to support this organization and my goal is to raise $250.00 by October 17th. The ALA's mission is to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease through Education, Advocacy and Research.
With the generous support of the public, we are ""Fighting for Air.""
