Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
For the second year I have taken the leap to dedicate my mind, body, legs, and feet to fight Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with MS RUN THE US Relay team 2016.
Together, we will join the fight against Multiple Sclerosis and band together to raise over $200,000 in 2016. As a part of the 2016 relay, I have committed myself to running 156 miles in 6 days and raising $10,000. I will be running segment 14, which is July 11-16th, Joliet, IL to Fort Wayne, IN (cheerleaders welcome).
When I first joined the team in 2014 I didn't know anyone with MS, I only knew I wanted to help fight a disease that affected more than 300,000 people every year. This disease, which has varying levels of debilitation, affects the immune system by eating away at the protective covering of the nerves. This disease can result in vision loss, pain, fatigue, and impaired coordination which can lead to a life in a wheelchair. This disease DOES NOT have a cure but treatment can help. This disease can come on at any age and can last a lifetime.
Since 2014, I have met so many people whom this horrible disease has affected in one way or another - either personally or within a family. No one should have to live with this disease or lose a loved one to it.
Take the leap with me as I commit myself to this mission of running 156 miles (26 miles a day) and raising $10,000 to find a cure of MS.
Any amount of donation makes a difference.

Leave me a message of inspiration.
Tell me about someone you know with MS, tell me your story… I want to run for you. I will run miles and miles for your tears, fears, and cheers to find a cure.
Let's do this! Can't stop won't stop. #msruntheus
