About the Campaign

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!  I am on a journey to help end MS forever!  And in the meantime, I hope to aid in the advancement of treatment for people like me who suffer from sometimes debilitating effects of this disease.

In November, I will be running my first marathon in Richmond, VA.  The following March, my team Running from MS, will be running 207 miles from Columbia, SC to Charleston, SC.  Running is more difficult today than it used to be.  Because of MS, I have pain in my left hand and foot and lose vision in my left eye whenever my core temperature rises (running, hot summer days, anytime I have a fever, etc.).  I suffer from fatigue that can make even simple tasks seem impossible.  But I push on, because it helps me focus on what I can do.  I run to stay healthy, to keep moving, to clear my mind, and to feel strong.  There’s a real possibility that MS could take that away from me someday.

Please join my fight by donating here. 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!
