BENEFITING: LUPUS RESEARCH ALLIANCE
ORGANIZER: LUPUS RESEARCH ALLIANCE
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2017
Two years ago, my sisters and I lost our mother to a long and hard fought battle with Lupus. She was also a loving wife, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend. Although my mom always did her best to overcome her pain, those close to her witnessed the debilitating suffering caused by the disease.
As a tribute to my mom, I will be running the New York City Half Marathon on Sunday, March 19, 2017 as a member of Team Life Without Lupus.
Just as she never quit her fight, I will train, run and finish the race in her honor in hopes that a cure will be found.
