As a spinal cord injury provider, I am very invested in the health and wellness of individuals with spinal cord injury. Our team at Mayo Clinic is also making huge strides in developing research to improve the health, function and mobility of our patients with spinal cord injury. We are so grateful for U2FP in supporting our efforts to continue this cutting edge research!
I ran in the Duluth, MN Grandma’s marathon and the Big Sur, CA marathon in 2015. After a long run I crave chocolate milk and peanut butter pretzels. I listen to a mix of 90’s ‘classics’ to cool my nerves about the "start line" excitement.
Fun Fact: This is my first race since becoming a mom of 2!
City: Rochester, MN
Profession: Spinal Cord Injury provider
Race Goal (time/just finish!): Just finish!
Unite 2 Fight Paralysis is proud to be an official charity team for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon in 2019. Team U2FP is a group of passionate, hard working runners and wheelchair racers committed to racing the 26.2 miles and fundraising to advance research towards a cure for spinal cord injury.
The team raised over $125,000 in the past few years. All funds directly support our mission: to cure paralysis through advocacy, education, and support for research. Thank you for your support!
