BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2011
My incredible mother-in-law, Penny, inspires me; to be a better mom, to live on a boat, to treasure life, and to race. She's inspired me to tackle the NYC Marathon this November, so I'm dedicating my run to raising money for Parkinson's Disease, which she battles. Penny has conquered the NYC Marathon several times --and many other marathons-- but now has difficulty walking, and with daily tasks. Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that currently has no cure. But with more funding a cure could be only a few years away, in time for people like Penny. Please consider donating to show your support and help find a cure for Parkinson's Disease!
