Why We're Running
On Sunday, October 13, 2013 Katie and Jess will be running in the 2013 Chicago Marathon with the Race to Stop MS team.
We're obviously excited for the challenge of the race, which will be Katie's first marathon and Jess's return to marathoning after an injury forced her to withdraw from the Chicago Marathon in 2012. But we're just as excited to show our support by fundraising for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the 20,000 Illinois families touched by multiple sclerosis, including our own.
The money raised at Race to Stop MS supports programs, services and vital research into the cause(s) of and cure for MS. Your support will help us reach our goal of raising $1,500, which in turn will make a difference in the lives of those living with MS.
MS stops people from moving. We are grateful for our ability to run, and want to put it to good use.
