The money raised is going to the Choroideremia Research Foundation. Choroideremia is a genetic and degenerative eye disease that attacks the peripheral vision and erodes it over time and will cause eventual blindness. I am legally blind now. I have about 10-15 degrees centrally of vision left. My grandfather went blind in his 40′s. I am 37 right now and am looking for a cure or treatment. Not only for myself but for my brother (26) and 2 nephews (8 and 4) who also have the disease. My sister, mother and aunt are all carriers. This pattern will continue for future generations unless something is done to stop it.

Please visit the CRF website for more information.

Deborah has said she will match whatever is raised until the winner is drawn. So your $10 entry will send $20 to the foundation. (minus whatever fees Crowdrise takes).

So tell your friends and family! Please TWEET on Twitter and POST on Facebook.

Help EJ Scott Find a Cure for Choroideremia

ejfinalIt’s true, 10 years ago this month I was diagnosed with Choroideremia. Help me insure that another 10 years won’t go by without a treatment or cure.

Last year I ran 12 marathons (26.2 miles each), in 12 states in 12 months. My goal was to raise an average of $12,000 per race ($144,000 total). I’m happy to report that because of the support and help and a HUGE fundraiser in Chicago by the KING family WE raised over $150,000!!!

Thank you so much to everyone that donated and tweeted and posted and emailed and went to a benefit show or performed in one.

This year I’m doing another 12 marathons except this time they are TV marathons. It sounds silly but I wanted to make the point that you don’t have to run 12 marathons to raise money for a good cause. So one day a month I am watching 12 hours of one show. Shows I haven’t seen before. January was HOMELAND, Feb was GAME of THRONES, March was MAD MEN, and I’m trying to raise money for the Choroideremia Research Foundation.

A great guy and filmmaker, Ryan Suffern, has helped me put together a short film to use as a way to gain awareness and donations. And we have already been accepted in a great film festival (which I’m not allowed to talk about yet).

Please continue to support until this stupid thing is cured. Thank you so much!!! :)

You can see clips of all my races on my youtube page:

These upcoming fundraisers have been organized by CRF Members:

 

The Purvis Brothers’ Driving Blind Documentary Premier 2 Brothers, 1 vision … 0 sight  - 

With the prospect of losing their vision entirely, Tod and Justin Purvis have decided there are so many people/places/things in this country that they would like to see. Since Choroideremia starts with the peripheral vision, the brothers have decided to start with the peripheral states of America.

They circumnavigated the contiguous United States, seeing the great sights that make America beautiful and sharing their story along the way. They documented their entire 13,000-mile journey across the country on film in the hopes of raising awareness of Choroideremia and other degenerative eye diseases.

Join us for the east coast premiere of Tod and Justin’s amazing feature documentary. Presented by the WilmFilm Festival, Penn Cinema Riverfront in Wilmington, Delaware on April 27, 2013 at 4pm. Tickets are limited to 100 seats. Hurry! $50/ticket

Following the WilmFilm premiere of Driving Blind please join us at Ryan’s Wine (huge thanks to John Ryan!) for a tasting of some amazing wines. This will give us an opportunity to catch up, ask Tod and Justin Purvis a few questions, and spoil our taste buds with some big reds.

EJ Scott’s “outside the box fundraising” 3rd Marathon “Mad Men March”

Published on March 14, 2013 by in Fundraising

TV MARATHON for the CHOROIDEREMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION

EJ Scott says:

I’m watching my third show in my marathon of TV viewing.  This time it’s “MAD MEN,” and I’m calling it “Mad Men March.”

My first two marathons went very well with “Homeland” and then “Game of Thrones.”  I’m huge fans of both now.  I’ve been dying to get into “Mad Men” and have seen the first episode or two a handful of times but never got further, so it’s my #3 marathon. 

Last year I ran 12 Marathons in 12 States in 12 Months. That’s a lot of work. I think most people would look at what I did and either get motivated to try something to help or the opposite. They might look at it like “I cant do that!” I used to watch BIGGEST LOSER and it was intimidating to watch these people break their asses. It made me not want to exercise or lose weight. It seemed too hard. Then I lost weight on my own a couple years ago and it wasn’t extreme and it was still healthy. It took 8 months to lose 70 lbs. and its a daily battle to keep my weight at a healthy level. Not because of my body but because of my mind. I still eat the wrong things sometimes and too much of it. Anyway, I lost weight and raised money for the foundation. I didn’t really think I would’ve been able to, but i did! It was pretty great!

So now I’m doing the total opposite of running. I’m sitting. For long periods of time watching great television. The idea is watching shows I never got into but wanted to get into. Its thinking outside the box fundraising. You don’t have to torture yourself. You can do something fun and get people involved. So please join me on Twitter @ejscott (i’ll be tweeting now and then) and give to my cause. We are still far from a cure and need funds for research.

March 2013 marks my 10 year anniversary of being diagnosed with CHOROIDEREMIA. So please donate, by clicking on the button below and help me get this thing cured before another 10 years goes by. Thank you.

EJ Scott’s 2013 Marathons…? Sort of…

Published on January 29, 2013 by in Marathons

12HOURTV

EJ says:

2012 was all about me running and what was involved with that. i.e., planning fundraisers, traveling, training, eBay auctions, marathon running, recovery, etc. This year I want to get back to my creative roots i.e. again, writing, drawing, improv, and painting.

But I still want to see if I can raise money for Choroideremia Research that doesn’t involve me killing myself (not literally) with marathons. So this year I am doing marathons but not running marathons. TV show marathons! Thats right! Once a month I will choose a TV show that I haven’t watched that has at least 12 hours of content. I will watch 12 straight hours of that show. My girlfriend doesn’t think anyone will donate to this. I would like to prove her wrong.

I have rules and guidelines I must follow! You could read my blog to see more details. My first marathon begins tomorrow at 8:00am! Please donate to my cause at by clicking on the button below. Thank you so much and wish me luck!

What will I be watching first? HOMELAND!!! 12 hours of Homeland! Yes I have a lot of time on my hands and I love it :)

So far, my TV list includes the following shows:

  • The Wire
  • Sons of Anarchy
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Boss
  • Justified
  • Mad Men
  • Dollhouse
  • Downton Abbey
  • Homeland

And we will see what other ones!

For now you can still donate by clicking on the button below and also please check out the auctions at my eBay page and tell your friends about the auctions. Thanks!!!

Please consider giving to EJ’s charity, The Choroideremia Foundation by donating using the button below:
