Nichole vs. 26.2 miles to raise funds for A-T!
In honor of Liam Cowand, a sweet son of my friend Jessica diagnosed with A-T, I am running Grandma's Marathon and need your help! My goal is to raise a minimum of $500 for A-T Children's Project. I believe we can raise much more than $500 though, so any little bit helps. Help us find life-improving therapies and a cure for A-T (ataxia-telangiectasia).
WHAT IS A-T?
Imagine a disease that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, immune deficiencies, and cancer. Children with A-T are usually confined to wheelchairs by age 10 and often do not survive their teens. Because A-T is a multi-system disease, scientists believe that A-T research will help more prevalent diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, AIDS, and cancer.
