Why I Run – Matt Brotherton

Why_I_Run

My name is Matt Brotherton and I am training and will ultimately run in the 119th Boston Marathon on April 20, 2015 in memory of my Grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer’s during the last 6 years of her life.

Alzheimer’s is a cause close to my heart, so I am training hard and will run over 500 training miles so I can run for Alzheimer’s – for awareness and to raise funds.

Alzheimer’s is a brutally devastating disease that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior.

I hope to raise $5,000 for Alzheimer’s research and support services!
