What better way to spit in the eye of a debilitating disease than to say you are going to RUN a walkathon?
Justin Weiss and his rag-tag group of friends are planning just that....though most of them have never ran before...EVER!
But, hey, when a guy with MS says he's going to train to run 3.5 miles what excuses can you come up with?
You see, Justin watched his mother die of MS 15 years ago and he once told me how the research done since his mothers death is what will keep him from the same fate.
But research ain't cheap!
Last year, Justin raised a little over $1000 for the National MS Society but this year he's feeling ambitious! (gee, ya think!) His goal is to double it...or more!
We will be posting picks from our Saturday team runs and giving updates to our meager progress.
So, in the memory of his mom and in honor of a man that is determined to run, we humbly ask for your support and donation.
"Run, Justin, ruuunnnn!!!!"
