BENEFITING: American Thyroid Association, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
What do you do when you scour the existing NYC Marathon fundraising groups in hopes of joining one that is already raising awareness and funds for thyroid disease, only to discover there is not one out there yet? Why you start one of course. Did you know...
More than 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime. An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease. Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
Thyroid disease impacts the lives of far too many people. I am using this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of running in the NYC marathon to raise awareness and funds for this cause. Please join me by making a contribution in honor of a friend or family member in your life that is effected by thyroid disease. Thank you.
