Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm running the Boston Marathon on April 18, 2016 as a member of the Running for Rare Diseases Team. The money raised will support the non-profit National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), a federation of voluntary health organizations dedicated to helping people with rare "orphan" diseases. NORD is committed to the identification, treatment, and cure of rare disorders through programs of education, advocacy, research, and service. One in 10 Americans live with a rare disease.
I was privileged to run the 2015 Boston Marathon for NORD and was partnered with a wonderful patient from the rare disease community. Having a patient partnership is an incredibly moving and motivating experience for me; and is the reason I dedicated myself again this year to raise money for this very worthwhile cause.
I am excited to represent NORD again in April; and kindly ask for your support! My fundraising minimum this year is $5,000. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
My personal goal this year is to run the Boston Athletic Association’s full series of races (5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon) and dedicate these races to NORD and my patient partner.
Thanks so much for your support -- and please forward this to anyone you think may want to donate too!
