Hello all!

So after years of thinking about it I have finally decided to run a marathon.  That's right, run for over 4 hours to reach the finish line after 26.2 miles.  Even the thought scares me, but I know it will be worth it in the end and an accomplishment that I will remember for a lifetime.

As if that isn't enough of a challenge, I have also decided to try and raise $2,000 to help find a cure for Alzheimer's.  As many know, my grandmother suffers from the disease and every day is a challenge for her and those around her.  As genetics plays a key role in the disease, it is likely that this will continue to affect my family.  I want to do everything possible to try and advance the research so less and less people suffer.

No amount is too small and every little bit counts.  Please give what you can and I'll run my heart out so we can help the thousands of baby boomers that are at risk.

Feel free to email me at if you have any questions or want to donate offline.
