Project ALS Family
Lawyer; New York, NY
My Grandmother Florence Bruckner passed away from ALS on August 23, 2000 when I was 13 years old. Her slow deterioration for 2 years impacted our whole family. In 2015 I decided to combine my passion for running with my commitment to ALS. This was when I was welcomed to be part of the team to run and represent Project ALS in the TCS NYC Marathon. In 2016 I am running the TCS NYC Marathon for Project ALS again and hope to continue raising awareness and money for years to come. Supporting Project ALS's commitment to funding research and finding a cure is the most fitting way we can honor the ones we have lost to this disease.
