Chicago Marathon 2010 Mike & Neil
Why I'm Running
On Sunday, October 13, 2013 I will be running in the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon as a Run to StopMS charity runner. This will be the 4th year for me as an MS charity runner. In the last three years thanks to family friends, and associates TEAM NEIL has raised over $18,000.00.
I am running for my son Neil who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001 when he was 19 years old and a sophomore in college. Although Neil's life is forever altered by this disease, he remains optimistic that one day medical science will find a cure for him and all who suffer from M.S. Won't you please help by contributing a donation?
The money raised at Run MS supports programs, services and vital research into the cause(s) of and cure for MS.
I've accepted the challenge to raise $3500. Your support will help me reach that goal, which in turn will make a difference in the lives of those living with MS.
I hope you will join me create a world free of MS by making a generous donation to my Run MS campaign.

MS Stops people from moving, we exist to make sure it doesn't. This is why I run.
