EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013

THE STORY:

 

  This November I will run the NYC Marathon -- a longer distance than I have ever run before, and for me, just about a miracle.  Twelve years ago my life was completely changed: I suffered severe head trauma as a pedestrian in a hit-and-run car accident.  After emergency brain surgery and a slim chance of survival, I progressed through rehabilitation where I learned to walk, talk, and think again.  Throughout my recovery I learned the importance of setting goals and the determination to achieve them.  This lesson helped with my training for another big challenge: My first marathon.

  In honor of the skilled surgeons and therapists who helped make my recovery possible, I'm dedicating my marathon race to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA), an organization dedicated to advancing brain injury prevention, research, treatment and education, and providing help, hope and healing for individuals who live with brain injury, their families, and the professionals who serve them. http://www.biausa.org

  I'm committed to raising at least $2,620 -- that’s one hundred dollars for every mile in the 26.2-mile marathon.

  Please take a moment to make a contribution of any amount, and share this page with your friends and family.  Thank you!!
