I Run2Revive for my Step-Brother

I started to run in 2008, while living in London & participated in my first marathon raising money / awareness for neurodegenerative diseases. I caught the long distance bug & continued to run in marathons & then participate in triathlons, eventually competing in two Ironmans. We moved to California several years ago & fell in love with trail running.

I stay active for different reasons & one of them is to live a longer, healthier life by challenging my mind & body with new goals. One of those has been to run the Grand Canyon, & when I learned of the group Run2Revive it inspired me to run with them since I lost my step-brother to ALS. He was diagnosed in his early 30s & while his body deteriorated very rapidly, he lived another 10 years. It was devastating to watch a loved one in the prime of their life lose this battle.

I hope these groups & events will bring more awareness to ALS, which will lead to more funding, research & a cure.
