THE STORY:

The John Ritter Foundation (JRF) is proud to announce it has again been selected as an official charity of the ING New York City Marathon to take place on Sunday, November 3, 2013. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as raise funds to support education and research. We are so honored to have been chosen.

Funds from the NYC Marathon raised for the JRF will go to the John Ritter Research Program in Aortic and Vascular Diseases (JRRP) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) to support research to identify genetic risks for aortic dissections.

“The funds raised by Team Ritter will allow us to continue our genetic research to identify genes or altered DNA that increases someone’s risk for an acute aortic dissection. By identifying who is at risk, we can prevent the premature deaths due to aortic dissections,” said Dianna Milewicz, M.D., Ph.D., director of UTHealth’s John Ritter Research Program. “It will also help us spread information to both physicians and the public about symptoms and genetic risk factors for aortic dissections, including the fact that this condition can run in families.” Milewicz is also professor and George H. W. Bush Chair in Cardiovascular Research in the Division of Medical Genetics at the UTHealth Medical School.

Individuals interested in joining Team Ritter to run the ING NYC Marathon, help us increase awareness of aortic disease, and fundraise are encouraged to submit an application at:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Id5uCZ7oYcaOJ7LUbrDoQHf_gf_G8BU3h6VbpkvP0Bo/viewform.
