I am so excited to be running the NYC Marathon with Team Hope. Since I was a little girl, running has always been a part of my life because of my Uncle Gus. I remember my first 1-mile Fun Run on the 4th of July when Uncle Gus ran beside me the whole way singing "Ay ay ay Maria, Maria from Bahia" to motivate me to finish.
Uncle Gus ran many races and marathons before losing his life to Parkinson's. He shared with his family his positive spirit and love for running. Even though he is no longer here with us, his memory lives on every time we lace up our running sneakers. Please help me in raising money for the National Parkinson Foundation in honor of Uncle Gus.
