Hi my name is Andy Armstrong I am running a 5k on September 22nd 2013.  I was originally just going to run without donating to a cause.  My employee, John Hellis, has GPA/ Wegener’s and he has had a rough year.  He recently attended the Vasculitis Foundation Symposium and when he returned he was extremely excited about what he had learned.  I had not seen him this happy in a while, and he was very excited about coming up with ways to help the foundation. When I saw his excitement it made me want to help any way I could.  So I decided to run in honor of the Vasculitis Foundation and John Hellis so other people can become aware of what vasculitis is and what a struggle the patients have to deal with on a daily basis. Thank You for your support.
