Hi Guys, I am planning on running the Chicago 2018 Bank of America marathon. I will be running to raise money for the GLASA charity. Throughout my life I have faced similar challenges of being excluded from sports in a drive to try and protect me from hurting my hips (especially frustrating as a kid). My story is nothing compared to some of the people that the GLASA charity is able to help, but nonetheless, this is an amazing initiative and something that I truly believe in.
Now, fresh, and armed with two new hips, I hope to pay this back. If you can spare a few dollars please sponsor me, and help me reach my fundraising goal. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this.
