Thank you for visiting my page!

I am fundraising for my latest challenge - the Blue Ridge Relay! In September 2022, 12 elite runners, all living with Parkinson's Disease (PD), will compete in what is arguably one of the most grueling relay road races in the nation.– The Blue Ridge Relay (BBR). In only 35 hours, the Team Synapse runners from across the United States, despite the many physical limitations they have from PD, must complete 208 miles ranging from Virginia to North Carolina. They will confront 17,000 feet of ascent and must average a 10-minute mile pace to meet the race time limits. Each runner will take on three of the 36 race segments, running all day and through the night. This equates to an average of 5.7 miles per segment and around 18 miles in each runner's total commitment over the 35 hours. All this will be done to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for PD. Team Synapse also wants to inspire those with Parkinson's to exercise, the only way to slow the progression of the disease. When these runners wondered about assembling this Relay team, they were all in on making it a reality.

More than 6 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease (PD) — a chronic neurodegenerative disorder. There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. As the world’s largest nonprofit funder of PD research, MJFF is working to change this. MJFF is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson's disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson's today.

Your gift will make a real difference: 100 percent of the Run/Walk proceeds will go directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation’s high-impact research programs.

Help us move a cure for Parkinson's disease over the finish line by making a donation today.

Thank you for your support!
