In January of 2012 I ran my first half marathon at the Walt Disney World Resort. When we were on our way home to California the aiport TSA agent asked me what charity I ran for when she saw my finiser medal. I had no answer, I ran for myself. Those six little words played over and over in my head the whole flight home. When I returned to California I got busy contacting runDisney to find out how I could form a charity group and run for a cause. Why? Well, because our son, Parker, has a rare type of muscular dystrophy called Ullrich Congenital Muscular Dystrophy (UCMD) and we are the recipients of the MDA's generosity. This was our opportunity to not only give back for what we've been blessed with, but we get to make a difference in the lives of kids with neuromuscular disease. We're proud to say that we're helping fund a cure! Come run with us! We're making muscles, one mille at a time.
