Faces of America 2014
A 110 mile bike ride

Friday, April 25, 2014 - Sunday, April 27, 2014

I am participating in Face of America 2014, a 110-mile, two-day bike ride (April 25-27) from the Pentagon to Gettysburg, PA.

The purpose of this ride is to support wounded veterans as they prove to themselves that even though they carry battle scars, any goal is achievable. I am riding to support veterans with physical, external wounds, but also those veterans who have wounds that can't be seen.

For this ride, I need to raise $750. If you are interested in supporting me on this ride, visit my donation page. The money raised allows disabled veterans to ride for free. Thank you for even a small donation - every little bit helps!

Hugh-A-Thon 2014

Friday, April 25, 2014

Westmont High School
909 Oakwood Drive
Westmont, IL 60559

The Hugh-a-thon will be 30 minutes long and a blast.

We will alternate swimming 50 yards (2 laps of the pool) and try to swim as many laps as possible. Every five 50 yards, we also will spin the wheel of fun – that 50 will be a fun stroke, like corkscrew or dolphin dives.

This will be the third Hugh-a-thon. 
Our goal is to raise over $15,000 this year.

The Big Sur Marathon
Alison vs Charlie

Sunday, April 27, 2014
6:45am

Big Sur California, Highway One

I had never heard of epilepsy or known anyone who had it until my first seizure. My entire life changed during my freshman year of college when I was struck by a grand mal seizure. All I remember is going to sleep the night before and then waking up in the hospital. In the years since that day, not a moment has passed that epilepsy has not affected my life. It has been a journey of ups and downs, good years and better years, as I continue to learn what it means to live with epilepsy.

There is one thing I've found to decrease seizures - running. From the day I incorporated running into my routine, my seizures have drastically declined. Charlie encouraged me to sign up for the Big Sur Marathon, which we are both running in April. We're having some fun and doing a fundraising challenge - see who can raise $500 first! Thanks for your support! :-)
