This is the 1st Annual Charity 4 CHARGE 2 Mile Run/Walk.
Our family knows CHARGE very well. Michael and all three of our children have CHARGE Syndrome. The Foundation provides much needed research, education, outreach and support. The Foundation is the largest organization dedicated solely to individuals with CHARGE, their families and the professional who serve them. Our family wants to help the Foundation continue to fund research, provide educational materials, host conferences, and so much more. This organization has a positive impact on our daily lives, and we want to do everything possible to give back. Please help us support the Foundation.
