Last month I had the honor of meeting with several Genzyme employees, including 11 who are running in the Boston Marathon. These spirited athletes are participating in the Running for Rare Diseases program to raise funds for NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders). Each runner will run on behalf of a patient which will also help raise awareness as well as giving them a real connection to those fighting rare diseases.
Please visit their website for more information. You can show your support for this incredible group Genzyme employees by making a donation or just leaving a comment to cheer them on.
