Rockin' for Rare Childhood Disorders
This year, we are excited to announce that TGen's Center for Rare Childhood Disorders is an Official Charity of the 2014 P.F. Chang's Marathon and 1/2 Marathon!
This year not only can you run in the marathon but you can run for one of the many children involved with the Center for Rare Childhood Disorder!
For children suffering from rare disorders and their families searching desperately for care, the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders is a driving force in genomic medicine and a powerful community. We are undaunted in the pursuit to care for each child by identifying the underlying causes that lead to disease, searching for treatment options tailored to their unique biology, and doing everything we can to make a difference in their lives.
Here is what you need to know to join Team TGen and help support the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders!
