THE STORY:

Running for those who can't - Team Project A.L.S. NYC 2014 -

I didn't know much about ALS until grad school where I met Alex and many of his friends in the neuroscience field, conducting important research on the disease. Over the past few years I have learned so much and had the opporuntiy to attend a couple Project A.L.S events. I have run the NYC Marathon once before, but this year I am running it in support of this important cause.

When Project A.L.S. was founded by the Estess sisters in 1998, research to treat and cure ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig's disease) was conducted by dedicated researchers who worked separately on  various aspects of the disease. Project A.L.S. changed that approach dramatically by requiring that funded researchers and doctors from different disciplines work together, share data openly, and meet shared research milestones.

In the past 15 years, the Project A.L.S. family has grown far beyond the Estess sisters and their team of researches to include a diverse group including patients, donors, doctors, staff, friends, researchers and more. In the second year that its members will toe the line of the TCS New York City Marathon, Team Project A.L.S. represents the myriad interests, backgrounds and passions that contribute to the Project A.L.S. family and demonstrates the power of us all coming together for a common cause.

This November, I am joining Team Project A.L.S. to run the TCS NYC Marathon to bring attention to those who can no longer run due to ALS and to raise significant funds for aggressive, exceptional ALS research. Please support us any way you can. Every $1 counts!
