My Story

My Father in Law has MS and I've seen what it's done to him and studies have shown it tends to be passed on to women more often and I have 5 girls so I want to help find a cure.  I was an ambassador for MS Run the US last year and have been beyond inspired to do more.  Just to be a part of this is incredible and I am very excited.  I feel like there is a lot more to accomplish and I am ready to help raise awareness and help find a cure. 

You can make a difference.  I will put in the miles and you put in a donation.  I'll sweat, wear out numerous pairs of shoes, socks, shirts, water bottles, hydration, post workout, training hours, eat right, and run an insane amount of hours and put my body through as much as I can endure. 

Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.

Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
