I'm raising money for this event: Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
 My Message
HI Family & Friends,
I will be running the Chicago Marathon again in October. This will be my forth and final marathon and so I thought it was fitting for it to be the same one I did as my first. If you remember, I ran my very first marathon in 2012 in honor of my mom. Well this year I am running for my daughter who suffers from epilepsy and have joined Team Danny Did Foundation. The Danny Did Foundation raises awareness for epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). Paige was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 5 but that was after a grooling 8 months of us not knowing what was wrong with her. Paige still suffers from epilepsy and takes 4 pills a day just to control it. The Danny Did Foundation advances public awareness of epilepsy and SUDEP as well as helps with getting products approved for seizure detection and seizure prediction technology.
I said I would never fundraise again but I decided I needed something to get me through those long brutal training miles all summer long as well as the 26.2 miles come October.

Thank you very much for your support and for taking the time to read my fundraising page.

About my cause:
Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation is dedicated to advancing public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families impacted by seizures, and gaining mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. Epilepsy affects nearly 3 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. The name of the Danny Did Foundation originates from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.”

Our 2015 Team raised over $60k last year and those funds were used to help place seizure detection devices in homes across the country. These devices alarm a caregiver during a seizure which can reduce the safety risks often associated with seizures. Parents appreciate this peace of mind and are thankful for the chance to address a seizure and keep their loved ones safe. We plan to beat that team fundraising number in 2016, and we hope you will be part of reaching this goal. Thank you for your support! To learn more, please visit www.dannydid.org.
