BENEFITING: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
ORGANIZER: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
Some races I run for fun, some races I run for goals, to set a new personal best, or to push my limits in a new distance. On November 3, 2013, I will be running the NY Marathon for a reason that is not about me. I am honored to be a part of Team Ritter, to run for those who have suffered the devastating effects of aortic disease. I run for my friend Cathy, who has lost her father and her sister way too early in life to this non-discriminating disease. I will be running beside Cathy, as she has dedicated this race to them. I run to help raise awareness and money for research, so that Cathy can have peace for herself as research will help identify the predisposing genetic factors for this disease. Please join me in this great effort to raise money and awareness.
