About Me

I am running for Kids of Courage because of the years of joy they have given to my son, Ezra, and to so many others. For the past 10 years, KOC has provided Ezra the opportunity for independence, adventure, and friendship. Nothing says it more than the smile on his face when he talks about memories of his trips around the United States. Ezra was born with Familial Dysautonomia and requires medical supervision throughout the day. KOC provides full medical support while making sure that everyone has a chance to travel with no obstacles. I have taken on this challenge of running a half marathon to support these courageous kids, extraordinary staff, and wonderful organization. I am taking my first steps so that they can keep on flying and reach new heights.
