Kristin Hunt Sporting Purple for Platelets Marathon

From organizing fundraising 5km walk/runs to running half and now a full marathon in support of ITP awareness and PDSA, I have managed to create more positive experiences with this disease than negative ones.

This year I hope to raise at least $1,000 for PDSA by running my first marathon, which will be the second biggest challenge of my life! So I ask for your help! This organization does so much for ITP patients, they deserve all the support they can get and every little bit counts.

The Hamptons Half-Marathon

September 26, 2015

This September, ITP Awareness month, I will be running the half marathon to raise awareness and money for research. PDSA is a non-profit organization that has been such an important part of my journey with ITP.


September Fitness Challenge

Please look at my new Fitness Challenge for September! It's to raise awareness for ITP. September is ITP Awareness month and I'm trying to do my part in helping.

My daughter is on the more positive end of this disorder, and for that we are eternally grateful. My husband and I would like you to join us in spreading the word about ITP and help us raise funds for PDSA to help others with information, support, & research.

With love, Melinda
