Thank you so much for visiting my fundraising page! There are many reasons why I have decided to run the marathon again this year but two very important ones... Charley and Auggie my daughter and son. As a member of The McCourt Foundation Marathon Team, I will be helping to raise money for critical research aimed at advancing preventative treatments for Alzheimer's disease. My hope is that Charley and Auggie will never have to experience the challenges that come with a parent suffering from Alzheimer's.
In February of 1996, my father passed away after a 10-year battle with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. He was 56 when he died and left a wife, two sons, and a daughter. My family lived through the destructive effects of Alzheimer’s at a time which the medical advances and family support that exist today were not available. We watched day after day for many years as our father’s ability to be the man we knew deteriorated to the point of needing twenty-four-hour care at the age of 55.
In the last several years our family has taken an active role in raising money to help fund Alzheimer's research and care. We have done this through participation in events that benefit groups like the McCourt Foundation and The Alzheimers Association. My Sister, Brother and I have raised as a family about $45,000. This spring I have decided to take this to the next level and run the Boston Marathon as a member of the 2020 McCourt Foundation Marathon team. I will be training and running the race to help raise money to support this great foundation. Now comes your part in this! My goal is to raise $12,000 to help fund important medical research to prevent and combat Alzheimer's and I need all the help I can get. I have been training for the last couple of months and will continue to train until Monday, April 20th. What I need now are donations for this great cause. Donating is fast and easy right here on this page! I appreciate every single dollar that comes in and no donation is too small……or too large!
