Support Me

This upcoming October, I will be running the Chicago Marathon to fulfill a personal dream of mine and to raise money for the National Psoriasis Foundation. The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) is a non-profit organization with a mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected. I have been involved in fundraising with the National Psoriasis Foundation for the past year, and am running the marathon to fulfill a personal dream of mine as well as to raise money for this amazing organization.

For those of you who don’t know, psoriatic arthritis is an immune-mediated disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. Psoriasis is also associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression. Currently there is no cure for this painful disease, and living with psoriasis has unique and significant challenges. The good news is health care providers are becoming more aware of the impact psoriasis can have on a person's quality of life, and researchers are focused more now than ever on finding solutions to those challenges. Finding a cost effective treatment that allieviates flare-ups would have a meaningful impact for the millions of individuals that silently struggle with this autoimmune disease.

All money raised by me and the rest of Team NPF Run provides people with psoriatic disease the services they need to live well, while funding research for a cure.

Please consider donating, every little bit counts!!
