The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health (JRF) is proud to be an official charity of the ASICS LA Marathon to take place on Sunday, February 14, 2016. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as to raise funds to support education and research. We are very honored and grateful to have been chosen.
Funds from the LA Marathon raised for the JRF will be used to support our vital mission:
- Raising awareness of aortic disease, including risk factors and recognition of symptoms of an acute aortic dissection.
- Improving identification and treatment of individuals at risk for aortic dissections.
- Supplying information regarding proper medical and surgical management of aortic disease.
- Providing support to individuals and families affected by aortic disease.
