Thank you for visiting my page!  
I lost my dad a little over a year ago to complications from Parkinson's. When I saw the Michael J. Fox Foundation run come thru my emails, I was tempted to run for Dad, even though his response would be "why are you wasting your heartbeats running?" knowing well that it wasn't true. I'm not a morning runner, so a big THANK YOU to Nicole Cabe for helping me make the decision and running with me on 5/14.
Please consider sponsoring me as I run to help raise awareness and funding for such a great research community.

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

Thank you for your support!
