What is Team Stop the Clot for the NYC Marathon 2015?
They're an amazing team that has surpassed every goal set for them! Starting with a $30,000 fundraising goal back in March, they're now well on their way to meeting and hopefully, exceeding their $80,000 goal by marathon day - November 1. Every dollar raised has given them the chance to educate others and raise awareness about blood clots and clotting disorders.
They're a team of PE survivors as well as those who'll be running in memory or in honor of a loved one who has been touched by blood clots. Read each of their personal reasons for running, and you'll be tremendously inspired to support the efforts of this amazing group of athletes.
Consider this: On average, 274 people die every day from blood clots. They can just as easily affect athletes as well as those less physically fit. They affect men, women and children too; rich or poor – blood clots do not discriminate.
