My nephew, Micah has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, so this cause is very near to my heart. During the fall of 2013, I am training to run the New York City Marathon, to raise funds and support research on DMD. You can visit the PPMD site to learn more about this disease, and if you are interested in making a donation to the cause, you can do so at this site.
Below you will find two parts to the story of Micah, my nephew and how he came into our family. The rest of the story will follow shortly.
PS If you would like to read my TRAINING UPDATES: Weeks 1-7, you can begin with week one here. 🙂
