Present Troubles Racing is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization. By participating in multi-sport events (triathlons, duathlons, marathons, 1/2 marathons, organized bike rides, etc) it is our goal to make others aware of this disease and raise financial support to help those affected by amyloidosis. All funds raised will be split between the Amyloidosis Foundation, local Amyloid Support Groups, and Vanderbilt Stem Cell patients.
The Amyloidosis Foundation works to raise awareness about this disease, improve treatments, fund research, and find a cure.
The Vanderbilt Stem Cell Clinic is the only local treatment facility for amyloidosis . All amyloid patients are required to stay in the hospital for 30 days or more. The stem cell process is a very difficult time for patients and their families. These funds will help patients and their families with gift cards for gas, groceries, and local restaurants. At least twice to three times a year we also provide lunch for the whole stem cell floor.
