2018 will be my 6th NYC Marathon, and I could not be more excited to run it with TEN OTHER #TeamNarcolepsy runners. This is our first year as an official TCS New York City Marathon charity partner, and it's going to be incredible.
Every year #TeamNarcolepsy runs to fundraise for the network, and you can too! Learn more here: http://narcolepsynetwork.org/run-for-teamnarcolepsy/
We fundraise so that Narcolepsy Network can continue to advocate for people with narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia. Narcolepsy is a medical disorder that impacts 1 in approximately 2,000 people in the United States of America. The disease is a sleep disorder, involving irregular patterns in Rapid Eye Movement (REM) Sleep and significant disruptions of the normal sleep/wake cycle. While the cause of narcolepsy is not completely understood, current research points to a combination of genetic and environmental factors that influence the immune system.
