One Month!

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The 2011 Boston Marathon is now exactly one month away! I just wanted to take a moment to send out a huge "Thank You!" to everyone who has donated to the American Liver Foundation in support of my run. The end is in view, and and I'm well on my way to achieving what I've set out to do.

For training I have so far:

  • Run more than 500 miles over almost 200 hours.
  • Run between downtown Boston and Newton and back 8 times (including once in a snowstorm).
  • Consumed 66 energy gels and 33 cups of gatorade.
  • Done 900 lunges and squats.
  • Run around the MIT indoor track 400 times.
  • Worn a pink tutu while running 17 miles from Natick to Back Bay.

As you know, I'm doing all this for the American Liver Foundation with the hope that more people in the future can successfully combat liver disease like I did. I only have little over 100 miles more to run before Patriots' Day, and a tad less than $1,000 to raise in order to reach my goal.

if you haven't done so already and have a few moments and shekels to spare, please make a donation in support of my run.

What better time to say thank you than Thanksgiving?! Thank you thank you thank you to everyone who has already made a donation to the American Liver Foundation in support of my marathon run. Because of your generosity we've raised over $1,275 - a quarter of the way to my goal of $5,000!

If you haven't made a donation yet, you can do so very easily online at my Run for Research fundraising page. If you'd rather go the old fashioned paper route, you can send a check to me, made out to the American Liver Foundation and I'll forward it to the ALF offices. I'll forward checks at the end of every month.

Why Support the American Liver Foundation?

  • 30 million Americans - one in every 10 - are or have been affected by a liver, biliary, or gallbladder disease.
  • Liver disease is the ninth leading disease related cause of death in the United States with more than 42,000 people dying each year.
  • There are more than 100 types of liver disease, with hepatitis A, B, and C being the most common.
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, an obesity-related chronic liver disease, may affect as many as one in every four adults over the age of 18.
  • Hepatitis B and C infection significantly increase the risk of liver cancer, one of the few cancers currently on the rise in the U.S.

Many forms of liver disease are preventable, and many more can be treated effectively if detected early. The Run for Research team is working towards a world free of liver disease. Please help me make that goal a reality! Donate today!
