THE STORY:

When I ran my first Boston Marathon in 2004, I didn't anticipate it would become a "regular" thing. Now, over 11 year later, it's hard to imagine a winter without training runs in the cold - with an incredible group of people.

April 20, 2015, I will be running my 9th Boston Marathon. The reason I keep running this race is because it allows me, in a small way to make a dent in the long hard fight against Alzheimer's disease. My grandfather, Felix Iovino had Alzheimer's and on January 8, 2005, passed away from complications resulting from the disease. Growing up on Long Island, I once referred to him as fresh New York bagel, crusty on the outside, but a warm and soft on the inside. He cursed in Italian when he was really mad and made it his mission to keep the squirrels from eating from the bird feeder in his back yard. But he always had room on his lap for one of his grandkids.

I already lived in Boston when Gramps was at the worst stages of the disease and I felt like there was not much I could do. I'm still never going to be the scientist who creates the cure for Alzheimer's disease. but in my small way, I feel like I can now help by raising funds and awareness for the disease and an organization that does so much to support Alzheimer's patients, their families and research. 

This January marks the 10 year anniversary of Gramps' death, so I am pledging to raise $10,000 for the Alzheimer's Association this year in his honor. Thank you for supporting me in the quest to create a world without Alzheimer's.
