Amanda Widis Grace Elkus' Fundraiser:

Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation 2017 TCS New York City Marathon

THE STORY:

In 2015, Grace could barely run one mile (seriously). Two years, one half marathon, and a few Turkey Trots later, we're running the NYC marathon—the biggest in the world! After cheering on our friends last year, we knew that this year we wanted to take part—even if it's meant lots of early mornings and excessive foam rolling. To secure our spots (more than 98,000 people applied to run this year), we're raising money for the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation, which directly supports research into new treatments for the disease. Amanda's grandparents both suffered from Alzheimers, making this cause close to our hearts. We appreciate your support and hope to see some of you on race day! Currently accepting all music recommendations as well—Ellie Goulding can only get us through so many miles.
