Welcome to my 2017 Team Endurance fundraising page!  

Most of you know me as a short, squatty musician/worship leader. But last year, I added Triathlete to that little list. As a life-long asthmatic, I began my journey in December of 2015 with an app that couched me to run my 1st 5k. I went from being unable to run for 30 seconds straight, to completing my first sprint triathlon (400m swim/15mile bike/5k run) just 10 months later. My overall health is improving and now the weight is finally beginning to come off. The Rampy MS Research Foundation and Fundracing Team have helped transform my life and health. Thanks to your kindness and generosity last year, you helped me raise over $1000 for the foundation which is helping fund groundbreaking research right here in AR to find a cure for MS. 

Funds raised through the efforts of the Rampy MS Research Foundation from our Team Endurance for MS and Trifest for MS activities go to fuel research in the US.  Below are the highlights of our footprint as of today.

  • Support 20% of the MS research at UAMS in Little Rock, AR in the Rampy MS Research Lab
  • Support the work of two research doctors and two clinical doctors doing part-time research
  • Five year commitment to raise $250,000 began in 2013
  • Foundation will embark on new grant model in 2018 to award scholarships and grants to leading scientist in the US through grant submission process
  • Research has been able to reproduce the MS gene in animal model
  • Research currently in trial in animal model to isolate the most common proteolipid protein in MS patients

This year, I'd like to raise even more money to help fund the fight. So I am asking you to give even more generously, while I compete in THREE races. 2 will take place on the same day as part of the Trifest Weekend, and the 3rd will be at another event. Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping me achieve my goal. Thank you so much for your support!
