ORGANIZER: ALS Association Greater New York Chapter
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
On March 17, 2013 my dad, Thomas Allen Griffith passed away, just six short months after being diagnosed with ALS. It was a devastating loss that my family was forced to face very quickly. Through my grieving, I began to run. I ran for my dad who lost his ability to run. I began to run for a friend of mine, Michael Jaillet, who is facing his own journey with ALS. I began to run for everyone who has or has had ALS that can no longer run themselves. Running has helped in my healing and now I am running for Team ALS: Running 4 a Cure at this year's New York Marathon. I want to raise $5,000 to help find a cure for this devastating disease. Please join my journey by donating today.
