I have run 4 marathons in the last 4 years, most recently New York which qualified me for the Boston Marathon. It is a pretty incredible feeling to listen to the roar of the crowd during the race and as I pass that finish line. That feeling is so great that I would like to share it with Chris.
My friend Chris was diagnosed with ALS about 2 years ago. He and I are both former athletes and incredibly competitive people. The next Major marathon that I run will be as a team. He will be the heart and I will supply the legs.
An important component of our journey will be a running wheelchair and we have partnered with Ainsley's Angels of America, a great organization that aims to build awareness about special needs through inclusion in all aspects of life, INCLUDING RUNNING!!!
This is the Chair, the Hoyt Blade which we are trying to raise money for so that me and Chris can start training. Thank you for those who can donate, and if you can't please follow Chris and his journey here. https://www.instagram.com/beckettesbattle/
