While running the Colorado segment for MS Run the US Relay in 2013 I truly found my purpose and reason for running....to help and serve others. This is what is written on the baton I carried for 146 miles.
I knew that from that time on, I wanted to continue to do what I could to help end MS and also connect with people. To me...this is about caring and using the gifts God has blessed you with to help others.
