    Hello. I would like to be a runner/patient for your program. I am a runner and also have a rare disease. My disease is sarcoidosis an immune disorder that can be a little evil and look like MS, even cancer. I was diagnosed in 1997 and have had ups and downs and would really love to find a cure!
    May I run for you possibly next year?
    Thank you.
    Lori
