BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for my Uncle Steve who, after two years of fighting bravely, ended his battle with ALS on March 3, 2016. My family is very saddened by his loss, but also know that he isn't struggling anymore. I am so thankful for the times I had with him, especially dancing with him at my wedding in August of 2015, a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life. I will do my part to help raise awareness for this devestating disease. I am running for my uncle and for everyone else that is effected by ALS.
