The Marfan Foundation is proud to once again participate in the New York Road Runner's Charity Partner Program. We are looking for 5 committed individuals who do not have Marfan syndrome who want to run in one of the World Marathon Majors, and also help others by raising much needed funds for those with Marfan syndrome and related connective tissue disorders. Funds raised by our runners will help provide research, patient and physician education, promote awareness and help us advocate for those who live with Marfan syndrome or a related disorder. Runners are asked to raise a minimum of $3,500 and pay the race entry fee. The Foundation provides moral support, an enthusiastic cheering section, a lively dinner the night before the race, and our gratitude for helping those who live with these disorders every day.
