Day 6 of the countdown, with just four days until Friday’s run, today’s featured cause is the University of Miami Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence. As an organization whose vision is to create a world free of multiple sclerosis, the Center of Excellence strives to live by a set of core values which guide our work and our actions on a daily basis.

David will run miles 35-40 of the 52.5 mile run in honor of this charity and will be joined for this stretch by Daryl Eisenberg, Tracy Nathanson & Allison Wallach. Eisenberg was diagnosed with MS 16 years ago and will run with her sisters Tracy, a veteran of 10 marathons, and Allison who has completed three marathons including the 2010 NYC Marathon with David.

It is in the very same spirit of proving the unlikely can be done, that David running a double marathon. Show your support for those who believe obstacles can be overcome given commitment!
