The Richard Petty Family Foundation presented a $5,043 check to the Foundation Fighting Blindness in honor of Marilyn Green. The money was raised through an auction of Petty memorabilia.
Green has been active with the foundation for more than 38 years. She and her husband, Dean Green, a trustee for the foundation, have dedicated their lives to raising money and awareness to fight retinal degenerative diseases. Marilyn suffers from retinitis pigmentosa, so she has first hand experience with the hardships that come with failing vision.
