I am running one of the most iconic marathons not for myself, but as the granddaughter of Aaron Ganz. This is for the man who showed us anything is possible, as long as your heart is in it.
My grandfather was one of the most incredible individuals in my life who showed me you can be more than just one thing through out your life time. He left such a strong, humble and genuine prenses in our lives as a son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. Papa Aaron showed us you can live such a beautiful life as a doctor, scientist, botanist, artist, and even a comedian at times. There was never a time where Papa Aaron let the disease define him, but proved to all those around him he will continue to do the things that brought him the most happiness.
I know that with each step I take towards preparing for this marathon, my pops will be along aside me. By November 5th, 2017, I have pledged to raise $3,000 dollars to not only help raise awareness, but to help further research for a brighter future for those with Parkinson’s.
