BENEFITING: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH

EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon

EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015

THE STORY:

The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health (JRF) is proud to be an official charity of the ASICS LA Marathon to take place on Sunday, March 15, 2015. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as raise funds to support education and research. We are so honored to have been chosen.

Funds from the LA Marathon raised for the JRF will benefit the John Ritter Research Program in Aortic and Vascular Diseases (JRRP) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) to support research to identify genetic risks for aortic dissections.

“The funds raised by Team Ritter will allow us to continue our genetic research to identify genes or altered DNA that increases an individual’s risk for an acute aortic dissection. By identifying who is at risk, we can prevent the premature deaths due to aortic dissections,” said Dianna Milewicz, M.D., Ph.D., director of UTHealth’s John Ritter Research Program. “It will also help us spread information to both physicians and the public about symptoms and genetic risk factors for aortic dissections, including the fact that this condition can run in families.” Milewicz is also professor and George H. W. Bush Chair in Cardiovascular Research in the Division of Medical Genetics at the UTHealth Medical School.

Individuals interested in joining Team Ritter to run the ASICS LA Marathon, help us increase awareness of aortic disease, and fundraise are encouraged to submit an application here.
