On July 29th I will be running in the San Francisco Marathon not just because I want to but also because I can. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive disease that attacks the central nervous system. It affects the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves eventually leading to quadriplegia. My grandmother was 25 when she was diagnosed. Only three years older than I am right now. MS does not discriminate and is not curable. Please consider helping me work toward changing that. All proceeds form my run will go to the National MS Society. Your gift will help fund cutting-edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, and provide programs and services to help people with MS move their lives forward.
