I am running in the 2013 Chicago Marathon in memory of my mother, Donna McNeice, my friend John Keator, and a family friend Bob O'Neil who all recently lost their battles to ALS.  I am also running in memory of Michael Lopez (Team Cure ALS), who lead an inspirational battle with ALS and in the process has raised ALS awareness and was a source of hope to so many people.  I want to help all those who are currently battling ALS.  It is my goal to raise ALS Awareness and help find a cure for this dreaded disease.
