“I ran to benefit the McCourt Foundation for a second year in 2023 – Go Team TMF! Those who know me know that I love running. It’s one of the biggest parts of my life. Through some of the biggest challenges I have faced, running has been my ever-present solace. Joining Team TMF allowed me to use what brings me reprieve and joy to benefit an organization that brings others support during their most challenging times.
The McCourt Foundation’s mission resonates with me on a personal level. Last year, my family lost my great-grams to a neurological condition that took so much out of her and the people she loved most. While her loss was devastating, it reminded me to use what tools I could to help people experiencing a similar health challenge. I know my family would have benefited from an organization that supports research and education for individuals and their families as they navigate challenging conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and ALS. I hope our contributions will make such resources more accessible to those who so need and deserve them.” – Lidia
