Hello there! I run the New York City Marathon on November 3, 2013.
So . . . . could I have some money?
It would go to a foundation for Parkinson's research. So it would be tax deductible.
Any amount you could contribute would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
I'm running for the Bachmann-Strauss Foundation for Dystonia and Parkinson's Research. Bachmann-Strauss seeks greater insight into the causes and potential cures for Parkinson's. I am proud to lend them my support.
Parkinson's affects my family every day. The picture you see above is of my Yiayia - she's my grandmother. My Granny Bork also suffers from this disease. They are two of my favorite people on the planet. My hope is Bachmann-Strauss's research can help my grandmothers and each family affected by this disease.
If you guys get me to my fundraising goal, I promise to win this thing.
Thank you so much for your support, I really appreciate it.
