Runner for 2017 MS Run the US – Relay
What: The MS Run the US – Relay is an annual 3,100-mile relay run across America for the MS cause.
The Relay begins each year mid-April near Los Angeles, CA and finishes mid-August in New York, NY. To participate, each runner commits to running 160-miles over 6 consecutive days during his or her assigned Relay segment. There are 18 segments total spanning from LA to New York, thus 18 runners on the Relay team. Once selected, each runner spends months training and fundraising as they prepare to devote one week on the road with the nonprofit while completing their segment’s miles. Donations are given to fund research for a cure through the National MS Society and the Center Without Walls, and to assist those living with disability from MS.

My Runner Story:
They say everything happens for a reason..... This last year we had the immense honor of literally running into the MS team. They were crossing western Pennsylvania and came to a bridge out by our property. They asked if they could use our private crossing so that the runner could continue without a detour. Of course, we obliged and this lead me to learn about their charity and great cause. As me and my family are avid runners ourselves, this lead to following up by donating to them later that day through our wine charity and following up with the opportunity to be part of the relay team this year.
I am very blessed that I have the opportunity to be part of this great team and cause and appreciate all the donations, time and support everyone has given so far.
