Racing to repair MS!!
Francesca runs NYC!
I am SO excited to be hitting the streets of NYC this November to run the TCS New York City marathon with Team Tisch MS to raise awareness and funding for multiple sclerosis research.
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic and often disabling autoimmune disorder with no known cause, cure or prevention.
In my work as a researcher at the Tisch MS Research Center lab, I am surrounded and constantly inspired by both patients whose lives have been forever altered by this disease and people who have dedicated their lives to serving the cause.
Running has always been something that has brought me joy, but this experience has put my own health and opportunities in perspective, and I would love for the marathon to mean something to this very special cause.
Projects like the Phase II stem-cell clinical trial that we began this fall are an amazing source of hope for the MS community, but only possible through the support of generous donors.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal, every donation makes a meaningful difference in the lives of people with MS.
