BENEFITING: ALS Association Greater New York Chapter
ORGANIZER: ALS Association Greater New York Chapter
This year I'll be running the TCS NYC Marathon for Team ALS in honor of my hero, Mom. In May of 2016 my Mom was diagnosed with ALS. As the disease has progressed, it's been a constant uphill battle to keep her healthy and stay positive. Right now there is no cure for ALS, but there have been many developments in drugs that slow down the progress of the disease. Though there are no upsides to this disease, I have seen many silver linings on this cloud. My mom's friends have been an amazing support system to my family and I am able to see how much of a strong, bad ass woman my mom is.
I am very excited to add meaning to my miles this November and would love ANY AND ALL support. No donation is too small! And for those in NYC, if you ever want to join me on some training runs, I'd love the company.
