John Ritter Foundation Selected to Be a Charity Partner of the 2014 TCS New York City Marathon

The John Ritter Foundation (JRF) is proud to announce it has been selected as an official charity of the TCS New York City Marathon to take place on Sunday, November 2, 2014.  We are honored to have been chosen once again.

We are looking for a team of people who are passionate about increasing awareness of aortic dissection and its risk factors, committed to raising money to support our mission, and who want to train for and run the marathon.  Here is what some past Team Ritter runners had to say about the experience:

“You have to do it!  Great race. Great Team.”

“GO FOR IT!  One of the most amazing experiences in my life!”

“Hands down — absolutely go for it!!!  It is a fabulous experience running the NYC marathon and working with the JRF team is great.  It’s a rewarding experience and if you have a passion for aortic disease, raising awareness and other aspects of aortic health and education, this is the organization you want to be part of!!”

“It was fabulous and I would do it again in a heart beat!  Sign up ASAP!”

“If you are passionate about raising awareness – do it…You will have an experience of a lifetime.  You will meet a group of amazing people.  You will leave the experience with not only a finisher’s medal, but a support system of people who have the same passion as you do!  You will make an impact on other people’s lives by sharing your story…You will feed off the enthusiasm of others on the team and will finish your marathon journey a changed person.  I can honestly say the past four plus months have been the most amazing months in my life.  More people then I could have ever imagined have been touched by the knowledge that has been shared by Team Ritter members.”
