I'm a one-legged runner. I've run half-marathons from Cape Cod to the Cascades, the Falmouth Road Race a dozen times, and countless other races. I've also carried the Olympic Torch over the Charles River during its run prior to the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games. My father was a collegiate football player with asthma (this was a big deal back in the forties). Both my kids are visually impaired artists. So doing these counter-intuitive activities runs in the family, but of the three generations, my kids have the biggest challenge by far.
And so, I need help with funding for a cure for Retinitis Pigmentosa. Please give to the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary with a donation through my page.
