Thank you for donating to my 2014 Boston Marathon Campaign!! 

Five years ago I set out to run my first marathon and chose to train with the American Liver Foundation’s Run for Research team.  Thanks to RFR I not only completed the Boston Marathon in April of 2009 but I also had an opportunity to learn a lot about liver disease and why raising funds for ALF is so important.

Since that first year I have completed 4 more marathons, several triathlons, and many other races but opted to take 2012 and 2013 off from running Boston.  Last April, as Boston celebrated its beloved Marathon Monday, we witnessed the horrifying events at the finish line that changed the race forever.  The exact spot that has brought me so much pride and excitement became a scene of terror.  As Boston began the healing process in the days following the race I knew I would run the Boston Marathon again.  I want to replace the fear that was set on Marathon Monday 2013 with the joy I find in the course. 

Once again I will be running with the Run for Research team.  I’m excited to run with this amazing group of people who will work together to raise funds for ALF but I need your help.  I have committed to raising $10,000 which will fund research, education programs and advocacy for the liver disease and liver health.  Thank you for supporting my campaign this year and being part of my 2014 Boston Marathon.
