THE STORY:

 Hi everybody! 


Billy Thomas and I will be running in the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday October 22nd for TEAM HOPE and we need your help! 

We will start together and we will finish together. Side by side as brothers. A few years back Billy was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. As he always does, he has looked this battle right in the face and taken it on with full fervor. He is tough and he is a fighter. I am so honored to call Billy one of my friends. 

As I battled my own fights with Juvenile Diabetes and addiction, Billy has always stood by my side. As a confused and newly sober young man over 16 years ago, Billy was one of the first people to put faith in me. To this day he still has no idea what his single act of kindness meant to me but it forever changed the course of my life. For that I will always be grateful to him.

Here is my chance to show him that I support him in the same way he did for me so long ago. 

Like me, Billy has three amazing brothers. Dickie, Harry and Johnny have each in their own way had a very meaningful impact on my life. Dickie has been my boyhood idol since I was 10 years old. He also told me within 5 seconds the first time meeting a young girl on the first tee that she would be my wife one day. That angel is now the mother to my four (soon to be 5) children. Harry has taught me as much about competitive fire and decency as any man I've met and Johnny continues to teach me the simple values centered around genuine kindness and goodness. My own brothers (Brendan, Gavin and Colin) have stood by my side through thick and thin. Always believing in me and always loving me. 

This theme of brotherhood is why we reach out to you asking for support. 

Simply put.....WE NEED YOUR MONEY!!! 

Help us put an end to this hideous disease. Show Billy you believe in his fight. Show him you believe in brotherhood. 

Thanks for your support!


-Andy
