Galveston Marathon

In Memory of Mike Moore

My name is Tiffany Sherman. I am a wife, mom, public school art teacher, and a runner. I have run two half marathons, and I am currently training for a third that I will run this April. I plan to run the Galveston Marathon in 2020 with the goal of qualifying for Boston. 

As I run, I would like to honor my Uncle, Mike Moore, who passed away from Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) on Feburary 6, 2019. I will run multiple races in the next year to raise awareness of CJD, which is a rare prion disease that is fatal and currently without a cure. This fundraiser is to support the mission of the CJD Foundation, which is to support families affected by prion disease, raise awareness, and support medical education and research.

I have run distance for years and what I have learned is that the running community is wholehearted in not only racing to raise awareness for diseases like CJD, but also raising funds that support research. I am not asking for a specific donation amount so that you can give what you feel led to. I believe every dollar will help make an impact! Please share this link. Thank you for your support!
