Dennis is an author and Special Educator whose books, "I Am Special Too," "Stand Tall Against Bullying," "Never Give Up," and "Everyone Belongs," focus on issues including physical disabilities, bullying, and children with special medical needs. In "Everyone Belongs," Dennis shares the inspiring story of Ryan, a brave young boy living with a rare skin disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB). Dennis' books teach children the important lessons of accepting differences and showing kindness and support for one another.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation's work to find treatments and ultimately a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa. To date, the Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation has raised over $2 million for EB research.
The Jackson Gabriel Silver Foundation is honored to be an official charity partner in the prestigious NYC Half and Full Marathons. Since 2011, Team JGSF has raised over $250,000 for EB research through its participation in NYRR's Marathon Events.
