THE STORY:

Welcome again to my new fundraising page for my run for to raise funds for research at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in the 2012 Boston Marathon!  I am really delighted to be running again this year for a cause which is dear to my heart.  I have worked with the Boston Retinal Implant Project's founder, MEEI Neuro-Ophthalmologist Dr. Joseph Rizzo, for over 12 years,and I have found the staff at the Eye and Ear to be just extraordinary.  

Running the Marathon for the first time last year was a fabulous experience for me, and to me it epitomizes a "win-win" scenario: the patients at MEEi benefit from the funded research, and I got in great shape again.  I also saw how my fundraising efforts caused me to reach out and strengthen the many communities of friends, family, and co-workers that support me - what could be better than that?!

Please consider a generous donation to the Foundation of Mass. Eye and Ear in support of my run.  I look forward to hearing from you!

***
