BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
EVENT DATE: Oct 14, 2017
This is why I... RUN
I run for my sister.
When my sister was first diagnosed with MS over eleven years ago, I teamed up with the National MS Society-CT Chapter, to walk in Cheshire and raise funds and awareness for this dibiliating disease.
This year, I will be attempting to run my first FULL Marathon on behalf of the National MS Society to raise funds for my sister and all of those who suffer from this unpredictable disease.
The National MS Society uses the funds collected to not only support research for a cure, but to provide programs which address the needs of people living with MS today. The Society funds research, provides services, furthers education and promotes public policy development on behalf of 400,000 Americans living with MS. since the founding of the MS Society, over $721 million has been contributed to finding the cause, treatments and a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
Please consider making a donation to support me in my goal to run 26.2 miles while creating awareness of this disease along my journey.
If you're a runner and interested in lacing up to run with me on race day, or would like to volunteer at the marathon on behalf of the National MS Society, please let me know!
Thank you so much for all your love, support, and generosity!!
