Everyone has causes that are important to them, and this one is particularly personally important to me. I am running because this is a devastating disease that has the potential to be both survivable, and easily so. It affects the lives of so many families and I have so much hope for the ability to find more successful treatments, and even a cure.
Anything that people are able to spare would be generously received as I attempt to run 10k. This may seem like a pathetic distance to some, but as someone who has always been self-deprecating in the face of exercise, this is a particular hurdle for me.
