George's LA Marathon

VISION OF CHILDREN's Photo

BENEFITING: VISION OF CHILDREN

EVENT: ASICS LA Marathon 2013

EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2013

THE STORY:

Due to hurricane/Superstorm Sandy, the NYC marathon was cancelled and then George wasn't able to make the Philadelphia marathon... So, he will make his way WEST and run the LA Marathon in March!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In George's Words...

A few weeks after my son, George, was born, it was clear that something was wrong. A visit to the pediatrician led to an appointment with a pediatric, ophthalmologist, brain scans, neurological testing, and a brand new medical vocabulary, which included the diagnosis of "congenital nystagmus." Trying to navigate this process was emotionally overwhelming and practically daunting. It wasn't until I found Sam and Vivian Hardage and The Vision of Children Foundation that the process became easier. Not only did VOC provide me with a wealth of information, they focused my search and offered support by connecting me with other families who were dealing with similar challenges. Over the years, VOC has been an invaluable resource to my family as well as countless others; and so, I am proud to be as committed to them as they are to me. I believe that the research VOC helps to fund will lead to ensuring the healthy vision of all of our children.   

My son, George, is now almost 9-years-old. He is a bright, active, adorable boy with an amazing sense of humor and a unique way of looking at the world.

I will be running the LA Marathon on March 17, 2013  in an effort to raise awareness, as well as funds. I am hoping to put together  $30,000.00 (I'm almost 2/3's of the way there), and I am hoping you will help me do so with a donation of your choice. 

Thank you Sam and Vivian... and all who support this wonderful foundation.

-George
