Peter Wagner departs Maine for Illinois this weekend to support the Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) Foundation in the Chicago Marathon. Wagner has set a goal of $20,000 for his third race on behalf of the Foundation, and is already halfway there.
Wagner's daughter, Molly, 28, has CdLS and lives with her parents in Cape Neddick, Maine. She attended the public school system until she was 19, but physical difficulties from the Syndrome have made her less of a local presence.This year, Molly's father is targeting the small town for donations on behalf of her.
He told Seacoastonline.com, "... We just want people to know that Molly is still in the community with us. She may not be out and about as much, but she is still here. A lot of people have a connection to her."
