One of the most frustrating things for medical practitioners is to have a patient come in with a serious complication that could have been prevented or at the very least addressed early, before it got really bad. It happens all too often.
Danbury podiatrist Paul Betschart, DPM has teamed up with Sandy Hook Promise and will run in the 2019 New York City Marathon to help raise funds for this worthy cause. The platform of ending gun violence is important to support, regardless of our politics. Dr Betschart will run the 26.2 miles for the families of those who have lost loved ones to gun violence and will raise money to support the efforts of Sandy Hook Promise. A donation page has been established for those in the community that would like to support this effort: https://www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/sandy-hook-promise-foundation-nyc-2019/paulbetschart
Dr Betschart is also having a raffle for his patients, old and new, who can donate as well as a variety of thank you gift for donations of different amounts. Please call or visit the office for details. 844 375 7622
