2021 Virtual Marathon

William Barry New York, NY

Runner’s Statement On April 11th, 2021 I will be running in a 10 KM race to raise money for the organization Hope Time Cure (HTC). This is my fourth time running a race and raising money for HTC, an organization that is very important to me. HTC is a non-profit that raises funds and helps create awareness for epilepsy and also provides programming for individuals affected by this disease.

I run this race for my best friend Ezra Schwartz who was murdered by terrorists while on a gap year program in Israel. Ezra was truly a special person. He lit up every room that he walked into and always knew exactly what to say to cheer up anyone around you. My relationship with Ezra changed my life in immeasurable ways and he continues to have a profound impact on my life to this day. Ezra was planning on running in the Jerusalem marathon for HTC during his gap year and the organization is now dedicated in his honor.

I also run for Elan Galler, a young man with epilepsy for whom HTC was formed by his siblings. Over the years I have had the opportunity to get to know Elan and the truly amazing person that he is. Elan has remarkable perseverance, drive and commitment to accomplish anything that he sets his mind to. Hope Time Cure has provided so much great programming for Elan and others with epilepsy and provided these individuals with opportunities they otherwise would not have. The organization has also funded research and educational events at MGH that have a tremendous impact on raising awareness and providing support to individuals and families affected by this disease.

I know you are asked to support many worthwhile causes. I hope you will consider a donation to HTC.
