BENEFITING: UC Irvine Foundation
ORGANIZER: UC Irvine Foundation
This is my 2nd year raising money for UCI HD-CARE. Unfortunately, last year I ended up hurting myself and was unable to complete the half marathon. The good news is the money raised went to a very important cause!
The reason this cause is so close to my heart is because my boyfriend's mother and sister both have Huntingtons. Watching the impact the disease has had on him and his family is devastating. There is currently no treatment or cure for the disease. Any money raised goes to UCI HD-CARE, a research facility for Huntingtons Disease.
