BENEFITING: ALS Association Greater New York Chapter
ORGANIZER: ALS Association Greater New York Chapter
Recently my amazing Aunt Elsie was diagnosed with ALS. She is young, vibrant, in incredible shape, and has a wit that could beat just about anyone. Prior to her diagnosis, she ran, biked, played tennis, and was all around extremely active. After her diagnosis she continues to stay active, hasn't lost a bit of her humor, and has become an advocate for ALS and how badly it needs a cure.
After moving to New York a few years ago, running a half marathon, and watching the New York Marathon, I quickly decided I wanted to run it myself. I was very moved seeing runners representing causes they were passionate about and never imagined that one of these causes would soon be close to my heart. This is an incredible opportunity for me to supoort a much needed cause while fulfilling a recent dream. Any amount is appreciated, thank you so much for contributing.
