Please join me in raising money to help a great family get through a difficult time!

Earlier this year my brother in law Chris was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or emphysema. This September he will be undergoing a bullectomy, in order to help him breathe better. This is a major surgery and has a fairly lengthy recovery process. While Chris is recovering he will be unable to work. As you can imagine this is putting a lot of stress on he and Annie, both emotionally and financially.

In October I will be running in the Great South Bay Half Marathon in his honor. I had intially considered doing fundraising for the American Lung Association or a similar organization, but I really want this to directly help them. They are very worried about the medical bills and being able to put food on the table while Chris is recovering. Please join me in helping Chris, Annie, Mikey, Logan and (soon to be) Gibson get through this difficult time. Any help would be greatly appreciated by me and my family.
