Boston to Big Sur for the Alzheimer's Association!
After running and completing the Boston Marathon in 2014 all to raise awareness, support, and funds for the Alzheimer's Association I have decided to step up my game. Not only am I training for Boston, but I am training to run Boston 2 Big Sur. I will be running Boston on April 20th and 6 days later running Big Sur.
Why am I doing this you ask?
Last year I ran the Boston Marathon in honor of my mother in law, Margie. Shortly after the marathon we lost our dear Margie to Early On-Set Alzheimer’s, she was only 58. This year I will be running in memory of my Mother-in-law, Margie. I wanted a challenge and something that would not be easy to do, and most of all I wanted to do it for Margie.
Till recently, there was not much known about research on Alzheimer’s and it was a disease which nobody really talked about. Today, research on Alzheimer’s is emerging by leaps and bounds. More is known about the disease than ever before. Doctors are now doing studies on patients, and just this year started the very first prevention trial of Alzheimer’s. None of this could have been done without donations like yours.
Let's continue to raise money and awareness and finally put an end to this devastating disease.
Thank you for your support
