Thank you for supporting my fundraising efforts!
I am thrilled to be running the 2018 Chicago Marathon in support of the American Heart Association!
In 2017, I had the opportunity to run the New York Marathon and I guess you can say i'm hooked! Although I did not win the marathon 'lottery' I wanted to take advantage of the unique opportunity to run a marathon for a charity that I care about.
I'll be running the Chicago Marathon in 2018 on behalf of my incredible Dad who passed away from a massive heart attack in 2007. While running 26.2 miles requires rigorous training and dedication, no pain compares to losing my Dad.
Over the past 6 years, Team Run with Heart has represented a passionate group of runners, survivors and volunteers who have worked together to make a difference in their communities and around the country. Together Run with Heart has raised nearly $1 million—funds that have gone towards new cardiovascular and stroke research, education programs, and preventative initiatives in our communities and across our country.
Your donation is tax deductible and 100% goes to the amazing charity, The American Heart Association – Every 40 seconds an American will have a heart attack and through your donation, you will support such life-saving efforts as critical research, education and patient services.
I’m asking for help with my $2,000 fundraising goal which will allow me to run the 2018 Chicago Marathon on behalf of my Dad. Don't worry, I'll do all the running, all you need to do is donate!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me, my Dad, my marathon goals and The American Heart Association. I appreciate each and everyone one of you.
This ones for you, Dad!
