Miles for Moose

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - There’s a month-long virtual walk or run to raise money to help people who have a rare genetic disease.

Andrea Carr says her grandson Benson – who she affectionately calls Moose – was diagnosed with cystinosis when he was 18 months old.

She’s organizing a fundraiser she’s calling Miles for Moose.
