EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
HEY GUYS! As you know my name is Colin, and I am so excited to be able to run the 2017 Boston Marathon for Team Momentum and the MDA. What you may not know, is that a large portion of my family is diagnosed with a very rare form of Muscular Dystrophy called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT). I however, do not have CMT, but I have grown up with this disease in my family and have seen all the varying effects it can have on a person's life. And right now there is no cure for CMT, or a known treatment to slow the progression of CMT.
So this is where you come in. I am running the 2017 Boston Marathon for not only my family, but for all people diagnosed with this rare disease. I need your help to try and find a cure for this debilitating disease.
I will keep posting on this page as time goes on to check in and give updates on fundrasing and my training, just in case you want to follow along. Thank You all so much for your time, donations, and support in this challenge. I am running this race, and I am doing everything I can to make CMT a thing of the past!
