NYC Marathon '17 Fundraiser for Huntington's Disease
August 06, 2017
BENEFITING: Huntington's Disease Society of America, Inc.
I am training to run in the November 2017 NYC Marathon to raise money in support of the Huntington's Disease Society of America. Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurological disease that deteriorates an individuals cognitive, emotional, psychological, and physiological functions. It is a genetic disease that is inherited at a 50% probability from one parent. It has no cure. HD has affected my immediate family. My mother in law, "Bubbe", her mother Rose, and more than likely her Aunt Lillian, all suffered greatly from this disease. Please help me reach my goal of $3,500 to aid in the continued research for treatment of HD . Any donation amount is greatly appreciated.
