Hi Frangelina Jolie,

The shoes have been hung up (for the moment), the soreness has begun to subside, and my heart continues to overflow with happiness from all of the support that you have all shown me and UPS for DownS in the past weeks. Together, we’ve been able to raise more than $1,500 towards literacy programs for people with Down Syndrome. If coming into contact with Down Syndrome has taught me anything, it has taught me how much of a blessing it is. If this marathon can offer you anything, I hope that it has served as a manifestation of that blessing, and the power that it exudes.

The families that UPS for DownS supports and I cannot thank you enough for your support.

Stuff About Me:

I always knew I wanted to run a marathon.  Last year when I decided to run Chicago 2013 I knew I wanted to run for a reason.  I needed a motivation to wake up every morning during the blazing hot midwest summer heat to run.  I knew just the cause.  

In 2007 my uncle Gene Schmidt lost his two year long battle to pancreatic cancer.  It was a really hard time for my mom and for our family.  Gene was a loving son, father, husband and uncle. Pancreatic cancer has no cure, and it is one of the most aggressive forms of cancer.  Last year I raised $2,000 for pancreatic cancer, and this year I hope to blow past last year's benchmark!  Thank you to my family and friends who have been supporting me in my attempt to run another marathon and to put and end to this horrific cancer!
