The Brothers Garrett

THE STORY:

In March 2014, our father passed away from a weakened aorta due to a genetic disorder known as Marfan syndrome. Marfan impacts the body's connective tissue (e.g. heart, aorta, blood vessels, eyes), so vital in holding together the body’s cells and organs.

We brothers are fortunate to be free of this gene mutation, but other members of our extended family aren't so lucky. So we run the NYC marathon to honor our father; we also run it to support our broader family. And we run it to help the greater Marfan community.  

The Marfan Foundation is the perfect entity to support because it provides critical leadership to drive research, advocacy, and education for the Marfan community. Their exhaustive work enables others to live longer, fuller lives.

We hope you'll join us in supporting them!

Thank you,

Johnsie and Rob Garrett
