Nyc Marathon Help

I am running the NYC Marathon in a little over a week. This is my first race over a half marathon. I turn 19 Nov. 5th and figured I may as well celebrate my last few days of being 18 with a Marathon.

I am also running the marathon in support of Neurofibromatosis. Neurofibromatosis (skin tumors) affects many children every year. Neurofibromatosis can cause skin cancer, painful bleeding, blindness etc. It is not a pleasant disease for children, and I believe the Crossfit community could help ease their pain.



I have until October 25th to rise 975 more dollars for my cause.
I know that money is tight these days but even the smallest donation can help.
If you know anyone diagnosed with skin cancer, or NF I will gladly write their name on my singlet and spread awareness.

I will gladly help other athletes causes.


Thank you, and thank you for supporting the NF Endurance Team.

Thank you!,
