Runner Story & Why MS Run the US: When I stumbled across msruntheus.com I knew instantly that I somehow needed to be a part of this amazing team of runners. I have always run for myself: to think, to breathe, to smile. I realized that while running keeps me balanced, it did nothing to serve others—until now. I run to inspire and to be inspired. Ashley’s solo run across the US and her passion to find a cure inspired me, now it’s my turn to inspire others.
Running is the super power I am going to use to make a difference. It is how I am going to show others that those affected by MS are fighters, and will do whatever it takes to find a cure. I want to inspire others to reach beyond themselves and work for a cause that is greater than they are. Each step I take will be for my mom, who was diagnosed with MS 10 years ago, and who inspires me with every chance I take in life. I’m excited to help bring awareness to MS and raise money to expand its research.
Join me as I run and sweat and love my way to finding a cure!
