On March 17, 2013, Maggie O'Neil is running in the Los Angeles Marathon. She had always wanted to run a marathon (26 miles) when she was 26 years old, so she decided to participate in this marathon. Last March 2012, Maggie lost her mom Pat Reep to MDS, and she wanted to turn her grief into action by raising awareness for MDS and funds for AA&MDSIF in her mom's memory.
You can learn more about her event and make a donation on her fundraising page. If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to train and run with Maggie in support of her event, please contact Community Development Manager Martha Crews at email@example.com.
