BENEFITING: Foundation Fighting Blindness, Inc.
EVENT: 2019 TCS New York City Marathon
EVENT DATE: NOV 03, 2019
Growing up, I loved watching my Aunt Cynthia's fingers move across piano keys like waves flowing across the sand. The music would soothe my ears as I sat in an imaginary blanket of love and serenity. If I close my eyes now, I can still hear her humming softly along to the notes she brought to life. My Aunt Cynthia passed away last week, and I would like to celebrate her during my participation in the New York Marathon. In doing so, I will be raising money for a foundation that I am confident she would support.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness was established in 1971 by a passionate group of individuals driven to find treatments and cures for blinding retinal diseases that were affecting themselves or loved ones. Today, the Foundation is the world’s leading private source for inherited retinal disease research funding and has over 40 volunteer-led chapters across the U.S. Their research is world-renowned, and their support groups for the blind community are life-changing.
I would love your support as I run 26.2 miles.
