Fundraising Honor Roll

For years, I have run. I've run track. I've run cross country. I've run trails. I've run up hills. I've run down hills. I've run in the suburbs. I've run in the city. I've run in the desert. I've run on the beach. And for the second year in a row, I am running to help 30 million Americans who are affected with liver disease, including two pediatric patients who give my miles more meaning. They are an inspiration. 

In April 2014, I am running in the Boston Marathon with the American Liver Foundation's Run for Research team. In addition to training for the marathon, I will be supporting the efforts of the American Liver Foundation.

But the 118th Boston Marathon will be like no other. For runners and spectators. We will be finishing a race that was so horribly interrupted last year. In addition to raising money for the American Liver Foundation, I will be supporting the One Fund - an organization created to help victims in the Boston Marathon attacks in 2013. For every $1,000 I raise for American Liver Foundation, I will personally donate $50 to the One Fund.

I have twos 26.2-milers under my belt. But still, reaching my fundraising goal of $4,500 is as daunting as ever. But you can help!

I truly appreciate your generosity. Hope to see you in Boston!
