THE STORY:

I am very excited to announce that on November 1st, I will be running The New York City Marathon as part of the Stroke Challenge team.  My dad suffered a hemorrhagic stroke in October 2011, and I am honored to have been selected to run my first marathon on behalf of a charity that is very important to me.

Did you know 80% of strokes are preventable, yet stroke remains the 5th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of adult disability? National Stroke Association’s mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by developing compelling education and programs focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke. National Stroke Association was formed in 1984 to fill a void as the only national non-profit healthcare organization focusing 100 percent of its resources and attention on stroke.   

As my family and I have learned over the past three and a half years, recovery from a stroke cannot be measured in weeks or months, but is a lifelong process for both the victim and their caregivers and family.   Stroke is sudden and unexpected and there is often little or no time to prepare.  In addition to delivering education and awareness, National Stroke Association offers support groups and resources that can help survivors and caregivers cope with the physical, mental and emotional aftermath of a stroke. 

As a member of the Stroke Challenge team, I have committed to raise $3,500 by race day.   Please consider making a tax-deductible donation on my online fundraising page.  Any contribution, no matter the size, is greatly appreciated.  If you are unable to financially donate to the cause, I ask that you donate your time by spreading the word about National Stroke Association.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
