THE STORY:

Sometimes, it is lupus.

Anyone who kicks in $50 or more gets a free running lesson! $100 and I'll give you a lesson and even go with you to a running store and help you pick your next pair of running shoes. Why not!? - ANDREW

Why Lupus? Read Albert's story:

"Back in 2004 my lovely sister-in-law lost her battle with this disease. It was fustrating to see someone who I loved dearly go through so much pain. It was even more fustrating that in the modern world that we live in so little is known about Lupus.

My sister gave a good fight. She never let her situation bring her down. She was a loving mother of two, a wife, a sister to many and a beautiful human being. At the time I was 21 years old, still figuring out my life but wished there was something I could do.

I read a quote once about running that became something I would tell myself before every run, whether causal or timed. It says "I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't run. What they would give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I run harder for them. I know they would do the same for me."

So for this 2013 NYC Marathon, I along with 2 of my best friends (Andrew Hadro and Alison Magistrali) whom have been with me through my entire journey will raise money to help those who have been dealt a tough hand with this disease.

It may be tough, it may be 26.2 miles, we may even get tired, but we will finish. And in the end I will know that this race wasn't just a race. It was to keep a memory of Yvonne "Bonnie" Oliver strong and always remembered.

This one's for you. RIP sister

- Albert Rivera"
