Ataxia-Telangiectasia robbed Bayan of her ability to walk and run freely like other children her age. AT frequently condemns its victims to a wheelchair by the age of 10. Thus, the Bayan H. Hassaballa Charitable Foundation has set up its “Running For Bayan” fundraising program.
Participants must sign up for and be eligible to run in a major marathon, such as the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, and then raise money from friends, family, and colleagues for the Bayan H. Hassaballa Charitable Foundation. Participants will receive a “Running For Bayan” T-shirt and will attend, if in Chicago, the pre-race Pasta Party. All proceeds will go to funding research for a cure for AT.
