BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
Dear family and friends,
I am once again running for a reason. The reason I run is for my Dad. Over the course of 374 days I watched my Dad slowly lose his ability to talk, eat by mouth, walk, and eventually breathe. Sadly just 4 days after I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon in 2014, he succumbed to the awful disease of ALS. Thankfully I was by his side. As usual, this year’s race will be an emotional one and I will think of him with every step I take. I will continue to be his voice and his legs. I will continue to use my voice to tell my Dad’s story and use my legs to raise money for a cure.
Thank you for your generous donation and your support. Health and happiness to you and yours.
