Brampton lawyer, Ralf R. Jarchow of Prouse, Dash & Crouch LLP, is embarking on a journey to raise funds for the Boston Foundation for Sight.
Jarchow will begin his trek, by bicycle, on July 4 from Calgary and will cycle back to Brampton with the intent of returning during the last weekend of July. This is a distance of over 3,400 kilometres travelled on two wheels.
This fundraising endeavour is for a cause close to his family’s heart, as his daughter was treated and continues to attend for treatment for a rare ocular disorder at the Boston Foundation for Sight. It was during their first visits that Jarchow met Jesse (age 6) and his mother from Ghanna. Jesse had been diagnosed with Stevens Johnson syndrome and the Boston Foundation for Sight was providing treatment to him at no charge. It was during this visit that the Jarchow family experienced how caring the medical staff was at the Boston Foundation and what great lengths they went to in assisting Jesse, said Jarchow. The Boston Foundation is a top-rated facility in treating ocular disorders— and to enable the facility to continue to assist those unable to otherwise afford treatment, Jarchow became determined to help by Riding for Sight.
At this time, the treatment received by Jarchow’s daughter and Jesse is only available at the Boston Foundation.
To support Jarchow’s ride, donations are being accepted at the offices of Prouse, Dash & Crouch LLP, 50 Queen St. W., Brampton. Donations can also be directly forwarded to Boston Foundation for Sight, 464 Hillside Ave., Suite 205, Needham, MA, 02494— attention “Ralf’s Ride”.
