Washington University NF Center Family Raises NF Awareness with Run for Eric

Microsoft Word - runf for eric.docxEric Dominguez was two years old when he was diagnosed with NF1.  Since that time, his family has become a passionate advocate for NF research. To raise funds for research and to promote awareness about NF1, the Dominguez family created a group called Run for Eric.
Bi-annually, the Dominguez family travels to different locations around the globe to participate in marathons. In previous years, the Run for Eric team has participated in the Antarctic Marathon “End of the Earth for a Cure,” the Disney Marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon, the New York Marathon and in 2012 their first international marathon–the Safaricom Marathon in Kenya.
In June 2014, Run for Eric heads to Easter Island for their second international marathon. The Dominguez family and friends are on a mission to raise one million dollars for research at the Washington University NF Center.
Help them reach their goal! Check out the Run for Eric website for details.
