THE STORY:

My name is Max Hammer. I am Ron Meyer's Neurologist. He has developed liver failure and his Hepatologist, Dr. Mordechai Rabinovitz, has prescribed a newly approved medication, Sovaldi, that has a high chance of reversing the disease and saving Ron's life. The only problem is that Ron cannot afford the medication! Apparently each dose may cost a thousand dollars and he may need many treatments. It is estimated that he will need $25-30,000 to pay for these treatments. I hope to contribute approximately half that, $15,000, by this fundraiser. This is my first fundraiser, so please help out if you can!
This will be my third time doing the Rachel Carson challenge (previously 2008, 2011). It is a 34.7-mile challenge along a rough trail that is extremely hilly. My time in 2008 was about 12 hours, and in 2011 about 10 hours. This time I hope to get it to 9 hours.  Details about the challenge can be found here: http://www.rachelcarsontrails.org/rct/challenge
