Marathoning for MS

BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society

EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2012

THE STORY:

On October 28, 2012, I will be embarking on the longest period of athletic movement of my life.  My first marathon!  As if training for this mother of an event wasn't a large enough task alone, I have set out to raise $2,000 for an extremely important cause.

My biggest fan, my grandmother, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) over 20 years ago and has become progressively immobile as a result.  MS is a chronic, debilitating disease that attacks the body's Central Nervous System.  Symptoms and progress vary from person to person, but one thing remains across the board - it is imperative to continue and improve MS research and advancements.

Even after more than 140 years of research surrounding this disease, so much about MS still remains a mystery.  There is no known cause and no cure.  Treatments for MS have come a long way, but still have lightyears to go.  With your help, advances can be reached much sooner!

My grandmother is one of the most resilient and positive people that I know.  Even after all these  years with the disease, I have never heard a frustrated, sad, depressed, or sickly word come out of her mouth. She and many other people, some of whom I know and some I have never met, are battling with this disease every single day, unsure what symptoms the next day may bring. 

Please help me move through my fundraising goal as I complete my 26.2 so that others can have a chance of moving and living more comfortably with this disease.

Thank you, in advance, for your help and support.  Any donation is much appreciated and will have far reaching effects!
