I will join others to help end the devastating effects of River Blindness, by walking in the upcoming 10K Peachtree Road Race.
By making a pledge on my behalf, you are purchasing the Mectizan drug to help prevent permanent blindness for those infected with the parasite.
Over 300,000 in the world have been permanently blinded by this disease, but there is still hope for countries in the Americas (Guatemala, southern Mexico, some areas of Venezuela, Brazil, Colombia and Ecuador) where the disease can still be eradicated.
Our goal is to raise at least $5000 this year to help OEPA eradicate River Blindness in the Americas.
Please help me reach that goal with your pledge. If you wish, you may submit all or part of your payment amount today by completing the enclosed pledge form.
Thank you in advance for your tax deductible support. Please contact us for your “Eradicate River Blindness” tee-shirts or to join us in an event.
