Running Boston to benefit Wake Up Narcolepsy is a wonderful opportunity! The 2013 Boston Marathon will be my ninth career race of 26.2 miles. With race day fast approaching, I plan to spread the word of my fundraising to as many folks as possible.
I resided in Boston for five years until 2010 and had the pleasure of living on the Marathon course at mile 22.5 in Cleveland Circle. My first marathon ever was Boston in 2008 and I ran again in 2009. I had the privilege of running for different charity teams in those years and witnessed the tremendous impact we can have supporting some great organizations.
While there are many great and well-supported causes out there, WUN provides a unique opportunity to create awareness about a disorder that doesn’t get nearly enough coverage in the mainstream media. It will be a pleasure to help change that in the weeks leading up to April 15. For me, there is no greater race than the Boston Marathon!
Thank you for your support!
