Miami Marlins Run Honors Workers and Benefits UM’s Multiple Sclerosis Center
On April 27, Miami Marlins President David Samson will lead a “Run to Honor the Workers,” a 50-mile run from Pompano Beach to Miami to commemorate the 5,000 construction workers who labored for three years to build the new Marlins Park and raise $500,000 for 10 organizations, including the UM Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence.
A check for donations made to the center will be presented during UM’s Family Weekend with the Miami Marlins later that night.
Designated runner for the UM Multiple Sclerosis Center of Excellence are Daryl Eisenberg and his sisters, Tracy Nathanson and Allison Wallach. Eisenberg was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 16 years ago.
Contributors can make donations online and specify that their donation go to any one of the 10 organizations listed, or they may “Support all Charities” and have their donation divided among all of them.
