$1,750 towards $1,750

Hello, my name is Alex Rich. Thank you for visiting my fundraising page to support The Danny Did Foundation in the 2021 Chicago Marathon!

Supporting the Danny Did Foundation is something that is truly special to me. Please support my 26.2 miles to raise awareness for those impacted by seizures and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP). I could not be more honored to run with a group of people in support of an amazing cause.

As a member of Team Danny Did, it is always an incredible journey to the finish line. It is truly inspiring to see everyone come together in support of such a great cause. I could not do this without the strong support and constant words of encouragement from my family, my friends, and the Danny Did Foundation.

Again, thank you for getting involved. Your support is greatly appreciated! We look forward to seeing everyone out there on RACE DAY!!

Remember to enjoy life by embracing the challenges and celebrating the successes, Danny Did.

About Danny Did Foundation

Founded by Chicago parents Mike and Mariann Stanton in 2010 after the sudden death of their four-year-old son Danny, the Danny Did Foundation’s primary mission is to prevent deaths caused by seizures. The Foundation advances public awareness of epilepsy and Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP), strives to improve communication about SUDEP between medical professionals and families affected by seizures, and advocates for the mainstream acceptance and use of seizure detection and prediction devices that may assist in preventing seizure-related deaths.

Epilepsy affects 3.4 million people in the United States and 65 million people worldwide. One in 26 Americans will develop epilepsy during their lifetime. But what few people understand, including many people with epilepsy, is that seizures can be fatal. More people die as a result of seizures than from fires and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) combined. In addition to deaths caused by drowning, other accidents, and status epilepticus (prolonged seizures),thousands of deaths occur annually from SUDEP, a fact that is little known and too rarely addressed by medical professionals and in public discussions of epilepsy.

The Danny Did Foundation takes it's name from the last line of Danny Stanton’s obituary, written by his dad: “Please go and enjoy your life. Danny did.” We celebrate Danny’s spirit in every child and family we reach.
