Roger is the Reason

My name is Roger A. Dunlap, Jr., and I am a 1st-time marathoner.  I plan to finish the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 6, 2012 in order to show my support OAR!  Please consider making a donation!  I really want to achieve my goal of $2,500 this year!  

Some of you know my story, but for those that do not here's the short summary: 

I finished the Pittsburgh Half Marathon in 2010 and 2011, and at some point along the way decided that I wanted to finish the full marathon in 2012 when I turned 40...and here I am!?

I run to support OAR in honor and memory of my beloved son, Roger III, who had autism.  He is my strength and motivation!  I love him and miss him very dearly!

Thank you all for your support!
