This August I will be joining my best friend and her family in a seven mile adventure across Falmouth, MA in an effort to raise money for a cause that has affect us for years now. Being a rower, I had many hesitations about signing up for a run that, in all honesty, seems dreadfully long to me. Stick me in a boat and I'll do it, but running? Whew. Don't know about that. But inspiration hit me. I was inspired by Karen McKenzie and her unwavering resilience in face of such a tremendous battle against ALS. I was inspired by Paul Castelline who exemplified unconditional love for his friends and family all while battling this same heartbreaking disease. I was inspired by the countless individuals who have fought, helped fight, and continue to fight ALS, whether its through support, raising money, doing research, or enduring the battle themselves. So friends, here I am inspired to run. Inspired to fight. Inspired to bring a better future. And all I ask of you is to join me. Please consider supporting my page and helping me reach my goal of $1,500. Thank you.
