John Tanner was a longtime friend and employee at Russell’s Garden Center in Wayland, MA, who unexpectedly passed away while running the NYC half marathon this past spring. John was an exceptional athlete and competitive runner who devoted all of his races over the past 5 years to raising awareness about Nicholas and Batten disease. He was a wonderful person with amazing kindness and devotion to help others. We are blessed that he chose to help Nicholas.
