Running for LUNGevity

With the Chicago Marathon just 5 days away (ahhh), I thought I’d give a little shout out to Team LUNGevity for passing their goal THREE TIMES! Together we have raised over $40,000 and we aren’t done yet!

Since many of you have donated to my page to support me, I thought I’d let you know what’s going at LUNGevity (courtesy of Katie Brown). If you haven’t donated but would like to click HERE.
