BENEFITING: The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition
EVENT DATE: Oct 04, 2014
Thank you for visiting my page!
You may know that we lost my amazing mother-in-law, Penny Farrel, in January. What you may not know is the name of the horrible disease that took her-- Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). This rare and fatal disease presents like Parkinson's Disease but progresses more rapidly and not only is there no cure, but also no effective treatment.
My team (Tess, Ruth, Caitlin and now Dave and the kids too!) and I are running a "Color Run" on October 4th to "colorfully" raise awareness of Multiple System Atrophy and to honor Penny's memory. Penny was an avid runner and we will run a mile for each of the 3 years she bravely battled MSA.
Please show your support by joining our team to run with us, donating to the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition® (www.multiplesystematrophy.org) using the big orange button on the right, or just help spread awareness of this awful disease. Thank you!
P.S. If you donate, after the race I'll send you pics of us getting doused in paint while running in thigh-high socks and a tutu :-)
