Kudus to the ultra-charitable, experienced actor and runner, Jonny Lee Miller! Jonny has run multiple times before to help raise money for the organization Jonah’s Just Begun. The organization is a 501 (c) 3 dedicated to curing Sanfilippo Disease. The foundation raises funds then distributes them to research groups focused on Sanfilippo Type C. The organization was formed after Jonah Weishaar was diagnosed with the disease at just 22 months old.
Jonny is best known for his work as Eli Stone and from his new hit show Elementary.
So far, the actor has raised over $165,000 for the cause and helped raise awareness efforts for the disease. The organization hopes that fans will “..help us thank him, how about some words of encouragement?”
On Sunday, November 3rd, Jonny is running the prestigious ING NYC Marathon. We will be rooting for him the whole way. If you are on twitter, don’t forget to say thank you and send words of encouragement to @jonnyjlm.
