THE STORY:

I'm back. I'm excited to take on the NYC Marathon for the second time this November! The 2015 NYC Marathon changed my life. Since then, I've had a baby boy, which has given me a whole different perspective and reason to fight to Cure HD.

 

Long story short - I still have a 50/50 chance of having the HD gene, however, I am here now - ready to fight. I am thankful to be on TEAM HOPE, for the Marathon and for the rest of my days. I now have a son, and that has given me a whole new sense of wanting to find a cure for HD. Not only am I at risk, but so is my precious baby boy. THAT IS WHY we must fight for a cure. 

 

I am running the NYC Marathon this November 2017 for:

My son - to one day be able to tell him that impossible is not a word. To possibly save him from this disease. I want to teach him never to give up on your dreams and never give up on life. If I have HD - I want him to know I left the world without giving up hope. 

My dad - I am doing this race in memory of my dad and to fight a disease that took him way too soon. 

Myself - I want to continue learning the lesson that we can do all things through Christ (Phil. 4:13) and we should never stop fighting the good fight. 

For YOU - for those who have spent too many days giving up because they didn't think it was possible - this is FOR YOU! You can live out your dreams too. 

“Blessed are those with cracks in their broken heart because that is how the light gets in.” ― Shannon L. Alder
