ORGANIZER: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
I'm running for my girlfriend and best friend Miriel. Her fight and persistance since she was diagnosed is a constant reminder of what true resilance really is. Me 'Running for Awareness' is my small contribution to a cause that needs way more attention. I hope this brings us a step, leap or jump closer to the bigger goal for a cure one day not just for my Miriel, but for every body's Miriel.
