Races for Research

This campaign ends on August 25 at 11:59PM EDT

Ed Greenlee is Racing for Research in support of the Research Institute for Children's Health on August, 25, 2019 as he participates in the Ironman 70.3 in Traverse City, Michigan. This includes a 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride, and 13.1-mile run! Help Ed reach the finish line to raise $7,000 to support research for childhood diseases. That's $100 a mile!

At the Research Institute for Children's Health, we are working tirelessly to find cures for childhood genetic diseases. Everyone knows someone who is affected by a genetic disease. Even though these diseases are rare, we are now able to think of them as a group and efficiently attack them.  

Despite advances in understanding and treating these diseases, thousands of conditions still lack effective therapies. Today's technology offers the promise of dramatic improvements in the lives of millions of children worldwide who suffer from genetic-based diseases. To build on this potential, the institute is generating the needed funds to accelerate the rate of discoveries and their conversion to therapies.

Our ultimate goal is finding cures and Ed is helping us get there. Financial constraints are our greatest impediments. Please support Races for Research, Ed's incredible accomplishment, and give to the Research Institute for Children's Health today!
