BENEFITING: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
ORGANIZER: Epilepsy Foundation of Metropolitan New York
EVENT: NYC Half 2014
YEAH! Thanks for visiting my fundraising page! I’m going to run the NYC Half Marathon and raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation. I'm doing this together with Merel Boom (another Dutch medical student who recently moved to Boston as well), who is currently researching epilepsy in children with Tuberous Sclerosis. She told me about how she has had the possibility to see some of these children in the clinic and hwo she witnessed how epilepsy can change lives and how incurable it can be. An explosion of uncontrolled firing cells, which not only provide certain remarkable behavior during an episode but also interrupt the further development of the brain.
Epilepsy caught my interest and I would like to combine this with a good run through New York, as I've been wanting to for a long time! Since I am currently living so close AND the race will be on my birthday, I really want to take this chance! So please click on the big donate button, it'll take you about ten seconds.
My minimum goal is to raise $1000 to support the Epilepsy Foundation. Any amount you can give is really appreciated!
For the Dutch people: if you don't have a credit card please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can give you my bank account number and I will make sure the Epilepsy Foundation will receive your donation.
Thank you so much!
