Run for Izzo for the NMF
Run for Izzo, started by Mindy Izzo and friends, includes teams and individuals participating in races and other fundraisers in numerous locations throughout the year, to raise funds for the National Marfan Foundation in memory of Jeremy D. Izzo, Mindy’s husband.
The races can be anywhere/anytime and you do not have to participate in a certain race to be part of Run for Izzo. However, there will be 4 "team races” throughout the year and the idea is to get as large a group out as possible for each of these – to promote awareness and meet other team members. These races are in places that were special to Jeremy, including:
- November 2011- Joliet RedEye 8K
- April 2012 – Christie Clinic Race Series
- June 2012 – Brookfield Zoo Run Wild
- Spring-Summer 2012 (date TBA) – Winston-Salem, NC
