The Cross Creek Ranch Dusk to Dawn Half Marathon 5K 1K
 Cross Creek Ranch
March 5, 2016

It's been almost 4 years since I've been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and through all the pain, struggle and frustration I have learned to be thankful for every step and every breath. My goal now is not to run for myself but to raise awareness about this disorder and others like it. I have partnered up with other athletes in the Houston area and as a team we are striving to raise as much as we can in hopes that a cure for future generations will be found. Please join me reach that finish line in record time!
