THE STORY:

Tim Byrne and Colleen Rabazzi- sibling duo running to beat Parkinson’s! We are honored to be participants in the TCS New York City Marathon this November as members of Team Hope for the National Parkinson Foundation.  We run to raise funds and awareness for the nearly 10 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s disease. We run in particular, for our uncle Greg Diffley, who was symptomatic in his late 30’s, with an official Parkinson’s diagnosis at age 40. 

Greg has always been an active and involved individual, with sports being a major part of his life. He had great success as an athlete growing up in Arlington, MA and continued at Andover Academy and Brown University. He has passed his desire to compete onto his two children, Brien and Jacqueline, and remains very involved in their collegiate athletic careers (Boston University and St. Lawrence respectively). However with Greg, it’s not just playing hockey, or supporting his children’s teams, it’s much more than that. It’s Greg unloading wave-runners into the ocean up in Gloucester or down in Rhode Island, and taking his nieces and nephews for rides, and teaching them to waterski. It’s Greg coordinating a day of fishing, and dropping lobster traps and showing off what he was able to catch. It’s Greg getting his family and friends to play bocce so he can beat every last one of them! It’s Greg working on the pool in the summertime for others to enjoy, and building a hockey rink in the winter time for those same people to enjoy. Greg has a blast participating in all of these activities, but his greatest enjoyment is seeing others have fun because of something he initiated. 

Greg, his wife Susan, and children, have been living with Parkinson’s for nearly 15 years. Although Greg remains very active, the disease has certainly progressed. It’s a physical and mental fight for him and his family on a daily basis. He takes over forty pills a day to help control symptoms and hopefully slow the progression of the disease, and does his part with diet and exercise to be the best he can be to provide for his family. Although there have been developments in treatment, there is still no cure and more needs to be done to beat this debilitating disease. Our goal is to raise as much as possible! We run to beat Parkinson’s, we run for Greg. Thank you for your help.
