Charity Information

When Alex Manfull died, at 26 years old, due to a neuroimmune disorder known as PANDAS, Susan and William Manfull established a Fund in their daughter’s name with the vision that no life ever again be cut short — or interrupted — by PANDAS/PANS. The Alex Manfull Fund is proud to have provided the funding to establish a repository at Georgetown University Medical Center for brains from donors diagnosed with neuroimmune disorders which, in January 2022, became the POND Brain Bank — PANDAS/PANS and Other Neuroimmune Disorders Brain Bank.  We collaborate with other advocacy groups to increase awareness and advance education for physicians and mental health professionals about how to recognize and treat these disorders.  If only one of Alex’s doctors had recognized PANDAS, Alex would be here today. Originally from New Hampshire, Alex died in Washington, DC in 2018.  She loved to run along the Potomac so we know this race would be very meaningful to her.
