The Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation is extremely honored to have been selected as a Charity Partner for the ING NYC Marathon 2011. It is an unbelievable opportunity to raise awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) and to help fund the life-changing research that is going on across the country and around the world to find a cure for this horrible disease.
Our team for the NYC Half Marathon raised over $14,000 (their fundraising goal was $7,500). Since this race is double the milage, please help our marathon team as they try to raise over $20,000 which will be used for funding research. To help make this happen, the Grossmann family has generously offered to match dollar for dollar the amount that each runner raises over $3,000.
