Greta’s Fundraising Page

I’m running in honor of my mother Frances Munger, who maintained a sense of humor, and constant strength, during her 20 year battle with MS.

I am inspired to compete for Team Tisch MS becasue I watched my mother fight MS for 20 years before passing away due to the complications associated with MS.  My mother was a great inspiration for me, and encouraged me to complete both my Master's Degree and PhD (one year after her passing).  I joined the GEMS Project for first degree relatives of those with MS, to help predict causes, and find cures for MS (Genes and Environment in Multiple Sclerosis (GEMS) Research Study).  My love for running begain as a means to deal with not being as active as I once was as a one time Division I basketball payer for Western Michigan University,  My running buddy Chris and I decided we would start a year of running to train for the 2013 Chicago Marathon, and we just kept running!  I found a place within the running commiunity with the Kalamazoo Area Runners (Kalamazoo Area Runners).  They  provide both training programs, and group runs throughout the week, to help motivate runners and meet new running friends year round.  I am exicited to bring both awareness of MS, and hope for those fighting as I run the 50th Aniversary TCS NYC Marathon.
