THE STORY:

'Footsteps for Finley'

I am raising money for Congenital Muscular Dystrophy research through Cure CMD in hopes that we find treatment options for my son, Finley Michael, and many others. 

On June 6th 2012, my husband and I welcomed our first and only son, Finley, into this world. Only a few short months later, we began to see that Finley wasn't meeting his physical milestones and the long process of getting to his diagnosis of CMD started. Almost 6 months later from when we started this journey, we still do not have a specific diagnosis of what type of CMD Finley has. Children with Congenital Muscular Dystrophy have various neurological and physical impairments; although looking at Finley you would never think anything was wrong with him, as he is always smiling!!  Some children never gain the ability to walk - and this is why I have decided to get my legs moving and participate in this 1/2 Marathon. I will be running the 1/2 Marathon relay with my great friend, Nichole Bryant! My Husband, and other family members and friends will be participating in the 1/2 Marathon as well. 

On May 5th, I will stay strong as Finley fills my heart and drives every footstep I take. As part of the NJ Marathon, the Cure CMD team will run in the race as an effort to find a cure for those like Finley. 100% of the contributions raised for Cure CMD will be used to fund research. Many people ask if they can help us in anyway and this is where you can help Finley and other children with muscle disease. Take part in raising awareness and money for research, in the hopes of finding a cure for this terrible disease. We thank you for supporting our cause; every dollar, thought, and prayer takes us one step closer to 'Footsteps for Finley.'
