Thanks to everyone who supported my team and me for the Chicago Liver Wellness 5K Walk and Fun Run. We raised over $3,000 and came in second place for top fundraiser. In total, the walk raised $111,134 for liver research to help those suffering from liver disease, like my cousin Jeff. Thanks! I liver you!
