BENEFITING: A-T Ease Foundation
EVENT DATE: Apr 02, 2016
This year I am going with a No sleep 'Til Brooklyn theme (since I am going to have to train hard every night) to help raise funds for A-T Ease. With that in mind, I am running the Ladies First Half Marathon in Brooklyn on Saturday April 2nd!!
Why do I do it? Because my friend, Steve Leo, has two young boys afflicted with this fatal disease.
Both boys love fishing, baseball, football and bowling. They have a beautiful golden retriever, Sawyer. Sawyer is a helper dog but I think the boys take care of him more than he takes care of them!
They do all of this from the wheelchairs they are in full time, with feeding tubes that provide the nutrients they need, limited motor skills and slurred speech, all of which are affects of the disease.
