EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
Welcome! This year I'm running the Pittsburgh half marathon in memory of my best friend, Katie Michel.
If you knew Katie, you can probably understand how difficult it is to accurately describe the strong, selfless, and inspirational person that she was. At 15, she knew more about living life to the fullest and accepting struggles with grace than I do today. Probably more than I ever will. I miss her so much.
I know that everyone has a charity that is meaningful to them, and everyone is asking you for donations. But I truly believe we will see a cure for CF in my lifetime, based on the significant progress that has occurred in the last few years. And when that happens, it will be so rewarding to have been a small part of it.
Thank you for reading this. Thank you for donating. And if you live in Pittsburgh, feel free to come down on May 5th and heckle. I'll be at the back.
