Here is a great opportunity for True Blood fans to help EJ Scott raise money for Choroideremia Research Foundation. EJ Scott is Deborah Woll’s boyfriend and he will be running 12 marathons in 2012 in 12 different cities and wishes to raise at least $12,000 in each city. One of the items being auctined off is a cut out of Alexander Skarsgard as his character in True Blood-Eric Northman. This cut out has been autographed by the cast of True Blood. See the video below for cut-out and the video from EJ.
Alexander Skarsgard has lent his support in the past to aid the cause Choroideremia Research Foundation. As an admin I’ve had the pleasure of also helping out this amazing cause. Cory McDonald , who is an operations manager at CRF, has requested fans to please vote for Jeff Benelli who is in the running or the “Energizer Bunny Hall of Fame”. After being diagnosed with Choroidermia, a retinal degenerative disease, Jeff Benelli decided to turn a potentially negative situation into a very positive one. For the last 17 years, Jeff has devoted his life to his wife, children, and finding a cure for this disease. Despite losing most of his eyesight, Jeff works full-time and has run in six marathons to raise awareness and funding for this disease. Despite the pain he suffers and physical limitations he might face, Jeff continues to push past any boundaries for the chance to help others.
