Celebrate the last day of summer with a paddle on the Mystic River, benefiting Hope in Focus and research to treat blindness!
On Wednesday, September 21, the last day of summer, join our paddle fundraiser sponsored by Adventure Mystic. Your fee includes a paddleboard or kayak, paddle, and life jacket. (Rain date, Thursday, September 22.)
Proceeds of this event benefit Hope in Focus, a nonprofit 501(c)3 patient advocacy organization dedicated to generating awareness, raising funds for research, and providing support, education and outreach to the Leber congenital amaurosis and rare inherited retinal disease community. Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) is a rare inherited retinal disease characterized by severe vision loss at birth. While some children are born with little or no vision, others may have significant vision loss in the first few years of life, stable vision for a period of time, and then eventually complete vision loss as the retina deteriorates into total blindness.
We look forward to having some fun on the water while raising funds for our mission!
