BENEFITING: MCCOURT FOUNDATION

EVENT: 2016 Tour de South Shore

EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2016

Jo McCourt

THE STORY:

It all began 25 years ago when my amazing cousins - the seven sons of Bob and Mary McCourt - voluntarily began fundraising for MS.  Bob and Mary eventually succumbed to MS and Alzheimer's, respectively, after long hard-fought battles.  Having experienced these diseases as devoted caretakers for their parents, Brian, Peter, Paul, Bobby, Chris, Greg, and Gary ramped up their charity efforts by establishing The McCourt Foundation.  The ultimate goal is to rid the world of neurological disorders that slowly rob patients of their dignity, independence and quality of life.  The McCourt Foundation partners with brilliant physician-scientists to support innovative research, and it also provides education and financial assistance to help patients and families coping with diseases such as ALS, MS, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's.

Inspired by my cousins' tireless philanthropic initiatives and as a loving tribute to Bob and Mary, I, too, have joined in the fight.  We cannot do this alone, so please join us by making a contribution to The McCourt Foundation as a donor, participant/fundraiser, or all three through the 2016 Tour de South Shore Bike/Walk event (details below)!  My Eagles of Hope teammates and I will happily walk on October 1 in gratitude for your help and generosity.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you!!
