Stuff About Me:

I had the honor of being matched with an amazing young man, Nicholas, (and his family) through the I Run 4 Michael organization ( Nicholas had Canavan Disease which is a very rare genetic brain disease. Children with this disease generally live to be 3 to 5 years old. Nicholas spent the 16+ years of his life beating the odds, however his body could fight no more; he passed away on November 20, 2014.  After his passing, I was logging some miles for him and his family and knew I wanted to do something special in Nicholas's name, so I decided to raise funds to donate to the National Tay-Sachs and Allied Diseases Association in his memory.  Please join me in honoring the warrior Nicholas was by continuing his warrior spirit through donations to help other families battling the same disease.
