THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for visiting my NYC Marathon fundraising page! 

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Simone Riley and I’m an attorney and avid runner in New York.  Here’s the deal:  26.2 miles.  I always dreamed of running a marathon and November 6, 2016 marks the day that I’ll make that dream a reality.  I am running the 2016 NYC Marathon as a member of the American Liver Foundation team in memory of Linda Gilbert.  Linda was the most amazing person to have ever graced this world and I am the luckiest person in the world in that she loved me like a daughter.  I wouldn’t be the person that I am today without her.

Linda passed away on April 29, 2014 due to complications from Wilson disease, a liver-related genetic disorder.  When Linda was admitted to the hospital, she filled out a “get to know you” questionnaire so that the doctors and nurses would know more about her and what makes her so special.  Fundraising was at the top of her list.  Throughout her life, Linda was passionate about fundraising for charities, often by participating in challenging walks.  My goal is to keep her spirit alive by fundraising for the American Liver Foundation and challenging myself physically and emotionally to complete my first marathon. 

Please join me on this journey by making a donation, by signing up for a walk or run near you (or this marathon with me!), and by sharing this page with anyone who might be interested in joining me in fighting against liver disease by raising money for the American Liver Foundation.

Thank you all for your loving support, in life and with this adventure!

Love always,

Simone
