On December 4th, our running team will complete the California International Marathon to raise funds and awareness for the NEC Society.
The strength and support from this community will push our runners over the 26.2-mile finish line.
Our running team is 24 members strong and united in one goal: supporting the NEC Society’s mission of building a world without NEC.
On December 4th, NEC Society’s Board Members, physicians, nurses, friends, family, and Founder/Executive Director, Jennifer Canvasser, will run in honor of babies affected by this devastating disease. In fact, this will be Jennifer Canvasser’s 10th marathon, and then just days later, she and her family will grieve the 10th anniversary of their son Micah’s passing.
We are asking for your help in supporting our team. No gift is too small, and every dollar makes a difference.
We are powered by stories like yours, and together we will run, advocate, and rally the NEC community to build a world without necrotizing enterocolitis. Together, we are transforming our pain into a powerful movement.
