THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,

I am excited to share with you that on November 2, 2014, I will be running in the New York City Marathon in support of Project A.L.S.  This will be my first marathon and while the butterflies are racing, I am thrilled to be a part of the Project A.L.S. team, and more importantly, I am honored to partner alongside my good friend’s mother, Carol Kleiner, and her dedicated fundraising group, Carol’s Crew, in this inspiring cause. 

In September 2013, Carol was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease, ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  Rather than sit on the sidelines and let the disease steer her life, my friend’s brave mother took it upon herself to raise funds and awareness about ALS through the non-profit organization, Project A.L.S., and specifically, through her campaign, Carol’s Crew.

The name of her dedicated fundraising group, “Carol’s Crew,” is inspired by Carol’s love of rowing and her determination to continue to enjoy her active lifestyle.  The name also represents the amazing support group that surrounds Carol and pledges to help spread awareness about ALS.  I am honored to be a part of the Crew.   

As a former college athlete and avid runner, I have always wanted to participate in the New York City Marathon; however, out of fear or self-doubt, I could never get myself to fully commit to the race and the required training.  After seeing Carol’s dedication to Carol’s Crew and her determination to maintain her rowing routine, I instantly made up my mind.  I want to seize this opportunity and I want to do it in support of this wonderful cause. 

Please take a moment to read more about Carol’s story and to learn more Project A.L.S. in the links below.

If you would like to support me in the marathon, please see the link to the right to my fundraising page.  Any donation, big or small, makes a difference and would be tremendously appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you will join me to support this great cause!

- Kerry 

P.S.  If you have seen the ALS ice bucket challenge, I promise that any of you who support the cause and come watch me on race day can throw all the ice / ice packs on me following the 26 miles!
