Movin' for Mary

Why I’m Movin’ for Mary…

On March 1, 2015, I completed the Cowtown ½ marathon in Ft. Worth, TX.  I ran in memory of Mary Sundt who was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2012.  I am running this as a fundraiser to raise money and bring awareness to the illness.

 I first met Mary shortly after moving into our new house.  Over the years we talked occasionally on the phone or when she was taking her dog for a walk.  Since she was diagnosed with ALS, I have been blessed by really getting to know Mary.  She is one of the most remarkable women I have ever met.
Sadly, Mary passed away from the disease in March 2014.  The last year I spent with Mary taught me so much about living.  Although ALS robbed her of her voice, it did affected her spirit.  Although she was limited in her physical capabilities; she was still in charge of her life.  I have learned that even if you are diagnosed with ALS, you can make the choice to live your life to the best of your ability. 

 Currently, there is no cure for ALS.  The one thing I can do is ask you to make a tax deductible contribution to the ALS Association.  Each donation will bring a cure to this disease. For More information, please e-mail movin4mary@gmail.com. 

In March 2013, the following article about Mary was published in the Alaska Star. 

You can also send a donation to:
