I will be running the NYC marathon to raise funds for the National Stroke Association. My mom has been an inspiration trying to recover from three strokes now and I'd like to do something to help. Stroke is the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. and a leading cause of adult disability. National Stroke Association is the only non-profit 100% dedicated to stroke and I am glad to use my participation in the NYC marathon to raise funds to support them in the fight against stroke. I hope you will consider supporting my individual fundraising effort if you can. Every donation will be immensely appreciated.
