Hi, my name is Bill Berman. I will be running the Run to Remember Boston Half-Marathon on May 28th, 2017. For those of you who know me and follow my running and racing I have been running for 4 years and 2017 will be my third year racing competitively. The Run to Remember Boston will be my second half marathon journey and my first time fundraising. I have decided to run and raise money for the Alzheimer's Association because this disease has directly affected me and my family. The Alzheimer’s Association works on a global, national and local level to enhance care and support for all those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementias and becasue they are committed to accelerating the global progress of new treatments, preventions and ultimately, a cure. I would like to raise awareness and ultimately I would like to help find a cure so other families don't have to go through what I have.
There is no way to describe the moment you hear the words, Alhzeimers, from a Dr. talking about someone you love. It's some of the worst words I have ever been told. I was scared and I still am. The feeling you get when you start to notice changes in someone you have spent your whole life with. When you have a conversation with someone but the conversation isn't really there, or you can't get the right answer. The fear you have when you know the road ahead is going to be a tough one. This is why I will be representing the Alzheimers Association all 13.1 miles on May 28th, 2017. It will be my way of raising awarness, funds and honoring those I have lost and who are living with it now.
So.... this is the deal that I will make with you. I will do all the training for the 13.1 mile race in Boston. I will put in all the miles neccesary to be prepared to finish this race. I will do it in the heat and the cold, rain or shine. I will run this race and finish all 13.1 miles on May 28, 2017, and I will never give up. I will run it for you. I will run it for me and I will run it to find a cure. So...the easy part is all you guys. All you need to do is donate to a great organization that is commited to finding a cure.
Peace and Love, Live Free, Boston Strong Forever.
