Gethrr is looking for runners, volunteers, and do-gooders for The Superhero Showdown Race on June 16 at the Norristown Farm Park. This event is the first major fundraiser for Super T’s Mast Destruction Foundation, a non-profit organization providing medical and living expenses to those living with the rare disease Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD).
Super T’s Mast Destruction Foundation was recently started in honor of King of Prussia resident, Taylor Nearnon, who lives with MCAD. Once an athlete training for the junior Olympic soccer team, MCAD has left Taylor wheelchair-bound. At age 19, Taylor battles constant anaphylaxis – serious allergic reactions that have caused cardiac arrest, and require her to undergo chemotherapy and 24-hour Benadryl, and a feeding tube.
Taylor dreams of helping other young adults with this rare disease. With your help, Gethrr believes we can do just that.
