September 10, 2012
BENEFITING: Oregon Health and Science University Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
Janet is running the NYC Marathon and raising money for multiple sclerosis and the Oregon Health Sciences University MS Center, where Dr. Dennis Bourdette leads a team of neurologists, medical researchers and care providers focused on putting an end to MS. Money will go directly towards research on MS.
Why MS? Janet has friends and family affected by MS who are running their own marathons to stay ahead of this disease.
Why OHSU MS Center and Dr. Dennis Bourdette? Because they provide very cool, big-picture MS care, and conduct cutting edge research. And because they wont stop until this thing gets beat. Most important, Dr. Bourdette is a great guy (see photo...)
By the way...
Janet is the single runner in the 2012 NYC marathon to be endorsed by the Monkey Hippy. The Monk became famous selling his signature Ecuadorian snack mix; he represents the super-Ecua way of life; and he is the easy way to get people to smile.
Join the Monkey Hippy movement and Achieve Super Monk Status! If you donate $150 (or more) to Janet Runs NYC 2012 for MS you will receive A LIMITED EDITION SIGNATURE ORANGE MONKY HIPPY T-SHIRT with the one-and-only on the front sporting his signature thumbs-up style.
