The Bobby Black Research for Amyloidosis 5K Run/Walk

Bobby Black!!!

Forever a part of and loved by his community.   His teaching career started at Mauldin High School.   He was a teacher at Langston Charter Middle School.   He was a Pastor and counselor at Ridgecrest Summer Camp.   He was a teacher in the program Bridges for a Brighter Future held at Furman University.   In all he did he believed in giving back to the community and teaching others to do the same.   He was and will forever be a major part of this community and of all the lives that he touched.

 

Why research is needed.

Amyloidosis is a rare disease where an abnormal protein called amyloid is produced. These amyloid protein fibers can attach and deposit into organs, tissues, nerves and other places in the body. When that happens, normal function of the area can be affected.  Statistics say life span with this disease is on average two years.  Some would have given up, some would have stopped living, and some would have just stopped.  This hero did none of those things.  He was active in his schools, active in his church, active in the summer camp, and active in his community.  After diagnosis, against all odds he was blessed to have 8 years, 8 additional years to shine, to smile, and to make a difference.

 

 

 

To honor his legacy, we will continue to give back.   Together help raise money for the Amyloidosis Foundation to aid in research for a cure for this fatal disease.   Help us to help others!!!
