Running the Chicago Marathon in support of the Danny Did Foundation. Your gift will help protect kids with Epilepsy.

26.2 miles to save lives!

$1,844 towards $1,500

Welcome to my fundraising page! I will once again be running the Chicago Marathon in October 2020 to support the Danny Did Foundation. The Danny Did Foundation's mission is to protect children with seizures. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy. Some seizures can be fatal. My reason for running is personal. Our daughter was diagnosed with idiopathic seizure disorder when she was 4 years old. She is now a happy, healthy 16 year old. We are grateful for this, but we don't want to forget those that are still suffering from seizures. The Danny Did Foundation helps to raise awareness about epilepsy and seizures, and purchase special monitors that help alert care givers that their loved one is having a seizure. These monitors save lives by alerting family members that their child is having a seizure and needs immediate attention. Monitors like these are very expensive and usually not covered by insurance. Your support helps Danny Did purchase these monitors! I encourage you to learn more about the Danny Did Foundation and the organization that was born out of personal tragedy.
