On a casual run in Kanas City, I stopped at a red light and jogged lightly next to a man in a wheelchair. I could feel him looking up at me. When we made eye contact, he smiled at me and said "I wish I could do that. Run for me." Tears came to my eyes and an overwhelming sense of duty hit me. I need to use my passion to advocate for others.
This year I'm running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for a dear friend and colleague of mine who's mother in law was recently diagnosed with ALS. My friend, Amy, welcomed me with open arms when I was new to the job, supports my every endeavor, and makes laugh on the toughest days. For those affected with ALS, this is for you. Don't give up hope!
