Fundraising event to support rare disease research for the PSMC5 foundation. The PSMC5 foundation was created to advance research and treatment options for Ollie Myers and Yoni Silverman who share a rare disease impacting their proteasome, a critical cellular component. All funds raised will be donated to research underway at Harvard Medical School, Goldberg Labatory and at Cambridge Univerity, Institute of Medical Research.
