Hey, Friends! I'm usually adverse to doing the whole fundraising thing, but 21 years ago this month, I lost my grandfather to Parkinson's disease. Grandpa Chris was a giant of a man, both in stature and in heart, and it was difficult to watch Parkinson's progressively take its hold. There are currently about a million Americans with Parkinson's, and every 9 minutes someone else is diagnosed with the disease. Long story short, my sister and I had already decided to run in the Big Sur International Marathon this coming April, and when I found out I could support the National Parkinson's Foundation by running with Team Hope, it only made sense. If you are willing and able, I'd appreciate your support for Parkinson's research and treatment through a contribution of any amount. Thanks!
