The John Ritter Foundation (JRF) feels truly honored to have been selected as an official charity of the 2012 ING NYC Marathon. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as raise funds to support education and research.
Our team is made up of people who are passionate about increasing awareness of aortic dissection and its risk factors and committed to raising funds to support the JRF.

I'm truly thrilled to be running on behalf of this organization! Just after my son turned 21 years old, he suffered an aortic dissection that we eventually learned was due to a genetic mutation. I searched everywhere for information regarding this and only when I discovered The John Ritter Foundation did my questions began to be answered. I feel strongly about getting the information out to people so that more lives can be saved, and that those that have been affected by this can know they are not alone and support is available. It is ALL GOOD!! :)
