Help Mark raise money

For participating in 2021 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon

My Story…

Greetings friends, family and colleagues. It is   again that time of year when  the GRSC participates in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon, even during the Pandemic, as we seek support into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma, a sight threatening disease. To refresh our memories and share the following with new supporters, my son was born with an essentially useless right eye, due to toxoplasmosis, an infection. Some years later he developed glaucoma in his only good (left) eye. Over time he has required two very significant and serious surgical interventions, and currently takes drops throughout the day, to help maintain his vision. Although not as serious or worrisome as my son, I also have glaucoma which requires the use of three different drops daily.  Thank you for your support into research of glaucoma.


Glaucoma Research Society of Canada uses the money raised through fundraising to fund groundbreaking research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma – one of the leading cause of blindness in North America. The board is dedicated to limiting administrative costs to ensure as much revenue is put forward for research as possible. Please help us as we work to find a cure!
