About

In January 2018 I ran the World Marathon Challenge (7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days) to raise awareness and $50,000 for the International Dyslexia Association

 

Why? Because at the age of five I was diagnosed with dyslexia and Sensory Processing Disorder, and with the support of my incredible family and community, I beat the odds. I graduated from USC and then went on to earn two Masters degrees.

 

I kept this part of my life secret for a very long time, afraid that the stigma of a Learning Challenge would alter how people saw me and the opportunities that I'd have.  Now, I'm sharing my story and your support means the world to me; dyslexia is not a limiting factor, it's a superpower. 

 

Thank you,

Jared Blank
