On Sunday, Days of Our Lives star Martha Madison went on the run of a lifetime –and for an incredible cause that meant the world to her family.
She and her sisters participated in the Dallas BMW Marathon in support of The Association for Frontotemporal Dementia (AFTD), the disease her mother has been living with for more than 15 years. The actress announced on Instagram just how it went.
“We did it, and I know our Mom would be proud! Thank you to my coach @tscga, for holding me accountable and reminding me every day for six months that I could do it.”
She went on to thank all of those close to her, especially her husband and daughter. But of course, this was an event to raise money, so Madison made sure to thank those who contributed to her fundraising efforts. You can see her entire message below, along with several pictures from the event.
Soap Hub congratulates Martha Madison on a job well done!
