Hi Friends and Family,
I am honored in joining the The National Parkinson's Foundation by training to run the Big Sur International Marathon on April 30th with Team Hope. Please join me in support of this foundation to provide hope through research and innovation, resulting in better treatments and better lives. I don't, for one mile, take for granted that I am lucky to be able to run this distance. I will be running in honor of Lisa, Carl Simpson, Norma Thacker and Dr. Susan Bratton, Lloyd Graham, Donny Jackson, David Reynolds and Ralph Reynolds.
Please let me know if there is someone you would like me to run for -it is definitely my inspiration.
I also recently read about a 53 year old mother of three named Rhonda, who was diagnosed at age 35 with Parkinson's. Previously a runner, after an elective surgery she found running, while "not a cure, gives her a much better quality of life." She has now completed 44 marathons! If she can do that while struggling with an incurable disease, I can certainly complete what will by 15th marathon.
I truly appreciate your support. Thank you!
