Running Machines

From Mark:

Team Getty Runners have a Facebook Page! Check it out here! We are so proud of the Team Getty Runners as they champion the cause, raise awareness, and race toward a cure for SMA.

We encourage all the Team Getty Runners to fund raise through the Crowdrise site for Getty Owl Foundation. Funds raised will help end SMA and support an impressive Gene Therapy research program through Dr. Kaspar at Nationwide Children’s Hospital /The Ohio State University. His program needs funding to move toward clinical trials.

I decided to sign up for the marathon as part of Team Getty because I heard about SMA from my friend, Morgan Saunders. She shared a story, and very cute pictures, about this amazing little girl, Getty, and her family’s efforts to gain support for her needs and find a cure. I wanted to support their efforts to give their daughter a fighting chance and raise awareness about SMA. I’m not a runner, but I thought that the least I could do was be a part of the walking relay team.
