This running event is raising awareness about Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) and helping the Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation continue to support the amazing research going on around the country. To date, JGSF has raised over $250,000 for research through our running events program.
I am personally passionate about this cause because one of my very good friends (Faye) has a son who has EB. Some of you know of him and may have even seen some of the videos I've posted showing how he lives with this terrible disease. He was even featured on the TV show, 'The Doctors' not too long ago.

I am asking for any amount of support you can give to help find a cure for EB and help these families put the devastating effects of this disease behind them once and for all. Thank you for your compassion and generosity! And wish me luck with this 5K run!
