BENEFITING: Huntington's Disease Society of America, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
My name is Jasmin Sullivan thank you for visiting my fundraising page! I am so excited to be running in the 2016 NYC Marathon and honored I will be apart of the HDSA team! As for all that are apart of HDSA this is very personal, my aunt (by marriage) suffers from HD. Her 5 children, whom are like my brothers and sisters, have the 50/50 chance of in heriting this devastating disease. I want to be apart of spreading awareness because we have already seen Dawn as well as 4 of 7 sisters suffer. 2 of the sisters have passed on, 1 is currently in the nursing home, and the other has not reached that degree of helplessness. As for my aunt Dawn she is taken care of by my Uncle Shawn Gibson and their 5 children. I cannot imagine my life without my cousins they are as close as siblings to me. Two of the five children have had children of their own that have stolen mine as well as everyone in the families hearts. So please be apart of helping us raise money for research.
