THE STORY:

FUNDRACER: MARISSA D'AMBROSIO Hello, friends! This coming November, I will be lacing up for my first marathon - the TCS NYC Marathon! I will be running 26.2 miles at the prime age of 26! I will be running for something much bigger than myself. In addition to running for the goal of completing a marathon, I will be raising funds for SightSavers- an international organisation that changes lives for the long term. The organization works in more than 30 countries to eliminate avoidable blindness and support people with visual impairments to live independently. Sight restoration is an extremely effective way of tackling poverty head-on. In 2016, Sightsavers performed 260,930 cataract operations and provided more than 152 million treatments to protect people from blinding diseases such as river blindness. My goal is to raise $260 for SightSavers before I line up to run on Nov 5! Please consider donating a few dollars to this awesome organization that is helping to make a huge difference to the lives of blind and visually impaired people in some of the poorest parts of the world. Your support can transform entire communities – restoring sight, helping the fight against preventable blindness, and ensuring that those who are blind or have low vision can fully participate in society. Thank YOU for your support! #26at26, Marissa
