About The Magnificent Mile Race:
Sarah Roberts-Witt, co-founder and inspiration behind The Magnificent Mile Race, was an avid runner and marathoner until developing primary lateral sclerosis in 2004. She is now confined to a wheelchair and is unable to speak. This race combines her love of running with her desire to find a cure for motor neuron disease. The Magnificent Mile Race has raised more than $150,000 to fund research grants awarded by the Spastic Paraplegia Foundation. Visit http://www.magmilerace.com.

About Spastic Paraplegia Foundation:
The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (SPF) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization founded in 2000 and the beneficiary of The Magnificent Mile Race.
