Welcome to Megaen Koscinski's Fargo Marathon Fundraiser for ALS
In August of 2020, my husband of almost 25 years, someone I have been with more than half of my life, and the father to my 3 beautiful children, was diagnosed with ALS. We have been trying very hard to wrap our heads around this diagnosis and what we will face in the years to come.
Since then, I have been lost, confused, and felt frozen in my tracks. I will admit, I am struggling with this one. We have a lot to figure out and the future scares me. I am a planner, a problem solver and a person that thrives on taking action. Not knowing what to do these past months has been hard. There is no cure for ALS.
What I have found is that I need to focus on the now and ways I can do something – anything – to help my family, and families like mine, traveling the dreadful ALS highway.
I am currently training for the Fargo, ND Marathon in September. I started thinking, what better way to stay motivated, positive and DO something to help Steve, then to raise awareness of ALS and support the Les Turner ALS Foundation in Chicago. This foundation will become more and more important to Steve, me, and our children. It has people and resources to help those living with ALS and their family.
I have never been comfortable asking for donations, but this one is very important to me. So, I am going to ask. Please help me make my marathon miles count and consider donating to my Les Turner ALS Foundation fundraiser. All funds raised go directly to the Les Turner ALS Foundation. No amount is too small. If you are not comfortable donating but still want to support my effort, share this link, join me for a run, let’s meet for coffee, or just send a message. I would love to hear from you!
I’ll provide updates on how training is going and how Steve is doing throughout the summer.
This fundraiser is on behalf of the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s Fundraise Your Way program. I believe that the funds we raise together will lead to a cure for ALS. This cause is important to me and I would greatly appreciate your support of my efforts.
ALS is scary. Really scary. The Les Turner ALS Foundation exists to care for those affected by the disease, answer their questions and support people living with ALS. They provide a personalized approach to treatment and care–preparing people living with ALS to navigate their difficult journey and supporting them and those they love each step of the way.
Please consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we can make an impact and create a world free of ALS.
Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
