Roger Wood's Marathon Unity Miles

On November 10, 2013, I will be running in the 1st Naperville Marathon & Half-Marathon.  I'm raising funds for Pulmonary Hypertension Association, a very worthwhile organization that truly helps patients and families that have this life-altering and debilitating condition.  Though Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension may sound common or familiar to you, it is quite uncommon and it's very harsh.   

I hope you'll consider a donation and maybe your employer will match your contribution.  I raised about $3500 for this organization in 2003 while running the Chicago Marathon and I would like to reach $4000 this time around.  I'm 10 years older, a little slower, and running for me just isn't as easy as it used to be.  This won't be easy but I'm still running for those who can't....

Take a look at this video to gain an understanding of the condition and what others are doing to help, including those pictured who are riding across the USA

Thank you for your generosity!
