My story and Why MS Run the U.S?

Did you know that every hour some one is newly diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis? As a physical therapist I work with individuals of differing abilities and impairments every day. A turning point in my life was when my friend, John Platt, walked into my evaluation room. He looked like any other male marathon runner presenting with the typical running injuries but then blurted out he had multiple sclerosis. My mind was blown that some one with MS could run marathons. Little did I know we would become great friends and I would run the Boston marathon with him as his guide. With John opening his world to me about mobility impaired running and adapted sports, I decided to go back to school to get my Masters in adapted physical activity to bring awareness and grow physical activity programs for kids and adults with disabilities. This year I am running the Boston marathon again with John but I am also doing something to bring more awareness and raise money to help find a cure for MS. I was selected to be a part of a relay and the only relay that runs across the United States, MS Run the US. I will run 167 miles in 6 days from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio to Brookville, PA. I chose to do this for John because I have seen the struggles and triumphs this man and his family have overcome on a daily basis. I have seen what MS can take from you and the secondary conditions that set in due to the disease. Running is not just a hobby for John, it's is saving his life. MS is a very debilitating disease and I am asking you to please help by donating to MS Run the US.
