Meet Catalina

Why did you choose to join the Race to End Duchenne team?

For my son.  Secondly, to raise money and spread awareness about Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

How many races have you participated in?

I’ve just started my running career for PPMD. I’ve participated in 4 other races.

How do you prepare for races?

I used an app to help train and I run three times a week.

Do you have any fundraising and/or training tips or pointers you would share with other runners – either advice someone gave you or you’ve discovered on your own?

I’ve found that social media and texting people really helps instead of emailing them to donate.

What will be the first thing you do when you finish your next race?

Thank everyone who supported the cause and show my son how many people love him and support this cause in helping to find a cure.
