Miles for Myles
Monday, May 11, 2009
The Myles M. Beringer Foundation invites you to celebrate the annual Miles for Myles Fun Run/Walk (3.1 miles) held in Rowayton in memory of Myles Beringer.
Celebrate Myles' birthday, the richness he brought to our world and his life with this route he loved to walk, run, or bike. Myles was a beautiful child who brought the gifts of compassion, courage, tenacity, adaptability, resilience, hope, faith, and most importantly, love without boundaries into our lives.
The Myles M. Beringer Foundation was founded in January 1999 and directly funds local projects to improve the lives of children and advance pediatric cardiac research at Yale New Haven Hospital. The Foundation has raised over $76,000.00 which funds research projects at the Yale School of Medicine, the Myles Beringer Scholarship Fund at CCNS, renovations of both the CCNS and UCNS playgrounds, the Myles Beringer Fund at the United Church of Rowayton, and annually awards two $1,000 College Scholarships to Brian McMahon High School seniors for their outstanding character based upon honesty, integrity, sportsmanship and leadership.
Contributions to the Pediatric Cardiology Research Fund at the Yale School of Medicine affords Dr. John Fahey and his colleagues the opportunity to pursue avenues previously unavailable. The advances being made in their research and in the treatment of children with congenital heart disease is very encouraging and inspiring. These funds help to provide for a national training program for research fellows at times when it is difficult to get funding.
Help the Foundation to continue to meet these goals each year. Join Miles for Myles Run/Walk to sustain his memory and support the Foundation that does so much for CCNS.
