Thank you all, so very much for your support in our fundraiser. I completed the 1/2 marathon in 2.5 hours and with your generous donations was able to raise $3,325 for the National Parkinson Foundation and in honor of 'PJ' Jake! Again, thank you!

Recently I have found myself entering into a new endeavor along with my father Jake .... in supporting the National Parkinson’s Foundation to help raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease, the same disease my dad has now battled for over 18 years.
Together, we are creating a campaign named KnockOutPD.com (website coming soon) in support of the NPF, in which we have set forth a few goals to complete in 2017. One of those goals - to support Team Hope, I hope to achieve on May 7th as I run my first 1/2 marathon in his honor. I am having my race bib personalized with '4 PJ' - short for Pappy Jake, as he is better known by his grandchildren. Please click here to read more of Jake's PD Story & 2017 goals.
Any support would be greatly appreciated, as we strive to KnockOutPD and as I train and raise funds for the National Parkinson’s Foundation over the next 9 weeks! Thank you, Tammy Smith
