DART to the Finish Charity Walk Raises over $130,000!

The fourth annual DART to the Finish charity walk benefiting Dana’s Angels Research Trust (DART) took place Saturday, September 25, 2021, in Greenwich, Connecticut, and virtually around the country. More than 325 individuals and organizations participated and helped raise more than $130,000, which will go towards supporting crucial research into better treatments, clinical trials and genetic testing for Niemann Pick type C disease (NPC), a very rare childhood disease that is often referred to as children’s Alzheimers.

“We want to thank everyone who walked with us, both in-person and virtually, for the DART to the Finish charity walk,” said Andrea Marella, co-founder of DART. “The sun was shining, the temperature was perfect and every person there did so much to help us raise funds for finding better treatments for NPC.”
