Welcome to My Personal Fundraising Page
Support my involvement in Team Parkinson!
I am participating in the LA BIG 5K on Saturday, March 18, 2017! Please support my involvement as I walk to raise awareness and funds for Parkinson’s disease research.
I have a very strong personal investment in this cause to honor the memory of my mother who lived with Parkinson's disease (PD) for 37 years, as well as an ongoing committment to my amazing husband John who has had PD for over 40 years. I guess you can say I'm quite passionate about this cause! I was just 11-years old when my mom was diagnosed with this progressive, degenerative neurological disease. And I was married to John for just ten years when he was diagnosed. Over all those years I have seen both signs of despair in the case of my mom and signs of hope in John. Sadly my mom never lived to see a cure. But there is still hope not only for John, but for the millions of others around the world suffering from PD, and for future generations to come.
I would love for all my family and friends to join me on race morning at Dodger Stadium to walk this 3.1-mile course, where every step will be a step of love and hopefully a step toward the research that will bring improved quality of life to those living with PD and ultimately a cure. As a participant, you too can fundraise! And you'll be invited to be our guest at a carbo-loading dinner on Friday evening, March 17, and receive a Team parkinson t-shirt!
Join me and take action. Register to walk with me at www.team-parkinson.org. Support my involvement in Team Parkinson! If you can't make the walk that morning, please, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Team Parkinson.
