Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics is the EXCLUSIVE 2013 Marine Corps Marathon allergy and asthma charity partner for the second year in a row!
A group of 12 runners have joined Team AANMA to compete in the 38th annual Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 27 in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia. The runners, most of whom who have allergies, asthma or exercise-induced bronchospasm  themselves or in their family, committed to run in support of Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics, a nonprofit patient education and advocacy organization.
“Team AANMA members are inspiring examples of what people with asthma, exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) and allergies can accomplish,” says Tonya Winders, AANMA Chief Operating Officer. “With an accurate diagnosis, a comprehensive strategy to manage symptoms and a determination to succeed, running a marathon is well within reach. Team AANMA’s support for allergy and asthma will help others do the same.”

Here’s what some of our team members shared with us after last year’s race:
It was definitely one of the coolest experiences i have ever had! Thank you for everything…it was such a great weekend!!! P. O’Keefe, Pittsburgh, PA
Your information, emails and motivation were a nice treat to the training process. I want to thank you for all your efforts and the amount of work that you put into the race. K. Towson, Atlanta, GA
It was great being able to run through all the attractions and passing the team AANMA cheering section helped motivate me to push through. K. Dave´, Pittsburgh, PA
When I drove up that last hill to the memorial I felt the best feeling I’ve ever had of accomplishment and excitement. At that moment when the Marine gave me the medal I knew each and every step I took, from raising the money, to putting in the miles, to getting to the race hurricane free and ready to run, were worth it. K. Rusu, Columbia, MD
