Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I completed my first-ever marathon in September and was thrilled to discover in October that I qualified for the 2014 Boston Marathon in the Mobility Impaired Division.
I was born with a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia and so as I run the Boston Marathon this coming April I would love to use this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for an organization that is very near and dear to my heart, Little People of America (LPA).
LPA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with dwarfism by bringing solutions and awareness to the prominent issues (health, childhood development, education, discrimination etc.) affecting individuals of short stature and their families.
While I am who I am today in large part due to the love and support of my parents, brother, extended family, friends, and mentors, I would be remiss to not also thank LPA for all the help it has given my family and me throughout the years. Whether it was through providing advice on certain heath-related issues I faced as a kid or by helping me become better adjusted to elementary school, LPA has always been there for my family and me when it counted the most.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. 100% of net proceeds go directly to LPA and all charitable donations are tax-deductible. Many thanks for your support and please share this link with anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Offline donations can also be made via check. Feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can provide you with additional details, thanks!
