THE STORY:

In 2008 my grandmother passed away due to Parkinson's disease dementia.  While the signs were present years’ prior it was not until the late 1990’s that she was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.  While Parkinson’s disease is fairly common in older adults, about half of those diagnosed will experience dementia with it.  Currently there is no cure for this chronic disease, but treatment can help control some of the symptoms.

Watching this disease change my grandmother was difficult on my young family.  During the early stages family members would take turns spending the evening and night with her to get her ready for bed and be there if anything happened throughout the night.

This October I am joining with Team Hope racing Ironman 70.3 Arizona to raise awareness and help find a cure.  Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $3,000

Thank you, Gerald Brady

Widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world, IRONMAN® competitions consist of 70.3-miles of consecutive swimming, biking and running. This event has been described as one of the best life experiences ever. Do you have what it takes to be an IRONMAN®?

The race begins at Tempe Beach Park, just west of the Mill Avenue Bridge. The swim takes place in a calm, manmade lake with water temperatures in the mid 70s. The three-loop (each loop is 18.5 miles) bike course is a relatively flat and winds through Tempe before offering some scenic vistas of the Sonoran desert. The two-loop run follows a 6.5-mile loop around Tempe Town Lake with some great views of Arizona State University and the developing landscape of Tempe.
