BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
EVENT DATE: Jul 29, 2012
So as a few of you know I have been training for the San Francisco Marathon on July 29th. I have also decided to run for Team MS on that day to raise a bit of awareness and hopefully some money for research. I realize that most fundraiser campaigns start well in advance of an event day but instead of sending everyone multiple reminders over a few months I’m going to try to do the same thing over the next 12 days.
The longer the training runs get the more I ask myself why I thought running over 26 miles was a good idea. This fundraiser will not only selfishly give me a boost to help finish but hopefully give a little more purpose to each mile:) I understand money is tight everywhere but whatever you can help with will be greatly appreciated. Remember, you have less than 2 weeks to help out!
I’ll be updating everyone with my race # so you can track to see how fast / slow I am on the course. Heather has been a fantastic help on the longer runs, playing water Sherpa behind me on her bike. Honestly, I’m just hoping to finish before they close the course…
Here is a link to where the money goes within The National Multiple Sclerosis Society itself:

Thanks for your support!!!
