THE STORY:

Last year I had planned to make 2014 my final Chicago marathon.  However, since I was not able to participate, I am once again training for this year’s event.  This year will be my final distance of 26.2 miles.  It will mark my 24th marathon and I’m sure I will look upon this one as the greatest of all of them.  I am dedicating this run to my baby sister, who never had a chance when Down syndrome was a sentence to an institution.  Also, to the wonderful little lady, Angel Katie, who inspired and taught me the meaning of overcoming obstacles that life lays before us.  She exuded the “I can do this” attitude more than any other person I have known.

Please help us help those individuals with Down syndrome have a better chance at a richer life.  Katie enriched my life beyond my ability to display and I want to pass that on to all of those with Down syndrome.  Remember, if they can read, it will help them succeed.
