About My Campaign
Friends, family, fellow marathoners,
I’m running 26.2mi for FACES, Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures, in support of my awesome sixteen-year-old sister, Katie.
FACES supports the work of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at NYU Langone Medical Center, which paves the way to a cure through ongoing research initiatives, clinical trials, and patient support.
FACES seeks to advance new therapies for people with epilepsy, expand efforts to understand and prevent Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), advance the development and use of seizure detection devices during sleep, and increase public awareness about epilepsy.
Katie's been active with FACES for years. Hear from her here: http://faces.med.nyu.edu/about-us
"Over the years, I hope more faces will start running for FACES. Every new face that runs is making a difference. With people sponsoring and donating to the runner, it makes a difference. I am so happy my sister is a face running for FACES. She decided to do this to help people who need the support from FACES. Some people don't even have the ability to run so if you can, do it and make that difference, raise that money so you can help FACES make a change. FACES has been working for years raising money and my sister will make a huge difference for the kids and adults who need the support from FACES. With your help, you'll be changing kids faces to a smile and changing lives." -Katie
Thank you for your support!
