EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to be a part of the 119th Boston Marathon - “Run to End Alzheimer’s - Boston 2015” race team. This upcoming April 20th, 2015 I will be running in honor and support of my grandmother, Margaret O’Leary, who has been battling this degenerative disease for several years. I am asking you for your financial support to both advance critical research as well as improve the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s today with enhanced care and support.
Even as Alzheimer’s has taken a toll on her, my grandmother’s spirit inspires me. When I visit, she is always positive, smiling and happy to see me. Thank you so much for helping me to support such a deserving organization and honoring someone so special to me and my family!
