Give to CRF on The National Day of Giving

Published on November 19, 2014 by in Fundraising

QmICZfq5Below is a notice posted at Choroideremia.org.  Won’t you consider giving on The National Day of Giving, Tuesday, December 2, 2014. What better gift can you give during this Holiday Season than the Gift of Sight?

We at the Choroideremia Research Foundation have been funding ground breaking research for almost 15 years, research that has resulted in advancements in gene replacement therapies and cell replacement therapies. In the United Kingdom, Dr. MacLaren and his team at Oxford are three years into human clinical trials for gene replacement with very encouraging results. By the end of this Holiday Season, we expect to see similar trials beginning on both the USA and Canada. The CRF is also funding research into possible pharmaceutical treatments and retinal cell replacement therapies. There has been continued progress and the research is ongoing.
We have seen amazing results due to CRF funding but we are not done yet.

We are asking you to do two things for the CRF. First, on December 2nd, please visit the CRF Giving Tuesday page and give the Gift of Sight! (The page will remain active through the end of the year but we urge you to give on Giving Tuesday).

Second, help us spread the word! We have a letter template for the CRF Giving Tuesday Campaign. Email Cory MacDonald, cory@choroideremia.org, to receive a copy of the template letter. Use it to send email and letters to all your friends, family and co-workers and ask them to support the CRF on Giving Tuesday!

Our goal is to eradicate CHM. Your support will enable us to save the sight of our loved ones! The Gift of Sight is precious and it is yours to give! Thank you for your support!

EJ Scott to run a marathon on every continent in 2015

NEWS FLASH! EJ Scott has decided to take on a new challenge to raise funds for The Choroideremia Research Foundation (CRF) and other favorite charities. He plans to run a marathon on every continent in the world in 2015.

Read below what EJ Says about his new fundraising efforts:

I am losing my eye sight to a genetic degenerative eye disease called Choroideremia (CHM). It attacks peripherally and erodes the sight inward until a tunnel vision and then total blindness. Im legally blind now and in that tunnel vision area.

My grandfather was blind from it, my brother has it, my two little nephews have it, my mother, aunt and sister are all carriers of it. Some side effects are light sensitivity (UV rays will also speed up the progression), night blindness, affected depth perception.

I’m 39 years old now. In 2012 I had recently lost about 70 lbs and I decided to start running marathons. I ran 12 marathons in 2012 in 12 states BLINDFOLDED. I was able to raise over $150,000 for  It was the hardest year of my life but also the most rewarding. I was able to get a short film called RUNNING BLIND made about that year that was accepted into several film festivals and will hopefully be available for public view soon.

On November 6th, 2015 I’ll turn 40 years old. In that year, before I turn 41, I want to run a marathon on every continent. Yes, including Antarctica. I will run all of them for The CRF and The Foundation for Fighting Blindness (FFB), and I will share each continent with another charity that means a lot to me. Im still figuring out which foundations exactly, but Ill be raising money for ALS, Autism, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Rett Syndrome, helping kids and animals. My overall, goal will be to raise $500,000 altogther for the charities.

The money raised here will go toward the cost of getting me to all the marathons (the cost of Antarctica alone will be over $10,000) and possibly equipment, depending on how much Im able to raise. I’d also like to make another documentary or web series about my year. Any help is a big help. We have a lot to sell and a lot to raise so keep checking back. 

Below is a video of EJ talking about his announcement:
