Burke Rehabilitation NYC Marathon 2015

THE STORY:

Running has been part of my life for a long time, first as part of my fitness routine, and then soon after, something I did as a way to explore and get to know a new place or to escape from the everyday routine. Running also became a useful tool to help me set goals and challenge myself as I began to run in 5ks, 10ks and half marathons with family and friends.

I’ve known Jessica since middle school. Hearing about Brad’s stroke over the summer of 2013 was painful. What was amazing and struck me most in the weeks and months that followed and that still resonates to this day, is how Jessica expressed in her notes to family and friends, messages of hope, optimism, strength and courage for her husband and family. Brad’s tremendous recovery and continuing progress is not only the result of the excellent medical care he received and continues to receive, but also the result of an unbreakable spirit along with strength and courage that both Jessica and Brad possess.

The Berman family has partnered with Burke, where Brad spent much of his recovery and where he continues to rehab, and their Medical Research Institute in White Plains, N.Y. (http://www.burke.org/research) to help establish and develop a lower-limb robotics clinic to help those who are physically disabled. This clinic has already helped Brad progress with his recovery as well as others who come to Burke.

The 2015 NYC Marathon will be my first marathon. I look forward to the challenge and I am excited to be part of the BURKE MEDICAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE'S TRAIN THE BRAIN marathon team. Inspired by Brad and Jessica, I hope to deliver a message on this marathon run, said best by Theodore Roosevelt, “Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength”.
