BENEFITING: MCCOURT FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: MCCOURT FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
Monday April 17th, I will run in the Boston Marathon, my first marathon, in support of the McCourt Foundation. For over 25 years, the McCourt Foundation has been assisting patients and supporting research to treat and cure a host of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's, ALS, MS, and Parkinson's. The McCourt Foundation will be teaming up with John Hancock for the seventh year in this historic race.
I am taking on this challenge for the many families dealing with Alzheimer’s and the effect that it has on sufferers and their family members. This cause has special meaning to me as I have experienced the overwhelming impact the disease has had and continues to have on my mother and our family.
I appreciate that all of you are called upon to donate to many worthy causes but I hope that you will consider lending your support to this wonderful organization. Your generosity will make a difference in the many lives of those living with neurological disorders.
Thank you in advance for your support!
