THE STORY:

Friends,

We are racing the NYC Triathlon (Olympic distance) on August 3rd, trying to raise money for the Buoniconti Fund in support of the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Justin's stepdad, Nick Buoniconti, co-founded the Project with Dr. Barth Green in 1985 after Nick's son Marc was paralyzed from the neck-down playing football in his sophomore year of college. Today, the Project is the largest spinal cord research foundation in the world. In the last few years, its scientist have pioneered the use of hypothermia to minimize the severity of spinal cord injuries, and in 2013 the Project announced the first ever human clinical trials using regenerative Schwann cells to treat paralysis. It is certainly an exciting time to be a part of this cause!

To provide more background, The Buoniconti Fund is the fundraising arm of the Project, and it has raised over $400 million since inception. The Project is based in Miami (Nick played for the '72 Dolphins), the medical research facilities are housed at the University of Miami, and the annual flagship event is held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City.

Finally, the Buoniconti Fund makes a video every year to inspire patients and scientists and to raise awareness about recent progress made and plans for the future. We encourage you to watch it (see below).
