ED'S NYC Marathon Run & Fundraising
In 2014, every single TCS New York City marathoner and supporter unite to contribute towards the goal of raising funds for charities. Ed Lee will be running his first marathon ever through the world’s most diverse city, bringing awareness for VITFriends and SE Michigan Vitiligo Support Group, and fundraising for VR Foundation.
Says Lee, - "Five years ago, I learned that I had vitiligo. I first noticed some white skin patches on my upper arms. Not sure what this was, I consulted a doctor and was told that this was vitiligo. At the time, little did I know that this was the beginning of a new journey filled with triumphs, challenges, and growth. This has been an experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world. It has helped me meet tremendously inspiring people, given me additional purpose to my life, and placed me on a platform to impact and touch others. Thank you so much for coming to my page (fulfilling my goal #1 above) and also for considering donating.
Additionally, I am raising awareness for two organizations that I have been involved in and are doing tremendous work to bring awareness and support to the vitiligo community. Vitfriends and the Southeast Michigan Vitiligo Support Group are like family to me.
Please feel free to pass this along to others!"
