Running the Buffalo Marathon for Baby Brady
Two business administration majors at Hilbert College are partnering with “Team Brady” to find participants to run, sponsor or volunteer at the Buffalo Marathon. Project manager Brandi Williams and Suzette Colangelo of Hamburg are promoting this event to build awareness of six-month-old Brady’s medical conditions and also raise money for medical expenses. Brady is suffering from two rare diseases called “Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia” and “Giant Cell Hepatitis.” In Brady’s short life, he has undergone several surgeries, countless procedures and weekly blood transfusions. They ask that the community makes an effort to assist on Sunday, May 26 and support Baby Brady in his continuous fight for life by taking part in the Buffalo Marathon. If you have any questions about how to get involved, call Brandi Williams at 220-4584 or Mark Williams at 510-6967.
