I am competing in a Tough Mudder race on April 30, 2016 in Phoenix, AZ, in order to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The course is 10-12 miles long, with over twenty muddy obstacles, and I will perform each muddy challenge with a smile on my face knowing that I am raising money for a great cause. This will be dedicated to my brother, who has Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy--a progressive disease where the body's muscles are deteriorated over time. He inspires me because he is one of the liveliest and most passionate people I know. Let's find a cure, and help support those with this debilitating disease!
