I'm raising money for this event:
Danny Did Chicago Marathon Team 2016
Throughout the course of my life, I have learned how important it is to do your part in order to give back to your community and to a greater cause. In the past, I have had the privilege of participating in many events that promote awareness and action for such causes, and I am thrilled to represent the Danny Did Foundation in this year’s Chicago Marathon.
The Danny Did Foundation was created in memory of the Stanton family’s 4 year old son, Danny, who passed away due to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). The Foundation’s primary goals are to help advance public awareness of SUDEP and enhance communication regarding SUDEP between medical professionals and families afflicted by seizures.
I will be running the 2016 Chicago Marathon for all of those families and individuals who are affected by or at-risk of developing SUDEP. I am honored to run as a member of the Danny Did Foundation Team and to fundraise directly for this important cause.
If you have the means to help this cause, please join me in my effort. Any amount of donation is greatly appreciated.
About my cause:
Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation is dedicated to advancing public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), enhancing the SUDEP communication model between medical professionals and families impacted by seizures, and gaining mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths. Epilepsy affects nearly 3 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. The name of the Danny Did Foundation originates from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.”
Our 2015 Team raised over $60k last year and those funds were used to help place seizure detection devices in homes across the country. These devices alarm a caregiver during a seizure which can reduce the safety risks often associated with seizures. Parents appreciate this peace of mind and are thankful for the chance to address a seizure and keep their loved ones safe. We plan to beat that team fundraising number in 2016, and we hope you will be part of reaching this goal. Thank you for your support! To learn more, please visit www.dannydid.org.
