THE STORY:

Hi my name is Danny Turken, and I am running the TCS New York City Marathon for Team Hope and the National Parkinson's Foundation. As some of you know, my grandfather—my Saba—has been living with Parkinson's Disease for several years. Saba has always an adventurous and vivacious man who loves everything about life, so it's been difficult to see the toll Parkinson's has had on him, both physically and mentally.

And though he is, and will always be, the same hilarious, chatty, and loving man I have grown up with, it is so important to me to run the TCS NYC Marathon in his honor and to raise money for Parkinson's research and awareness for the disease.

Most of us don't realize that every 9 minutes someone is diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. When you support with Team Hope in the TCS New York City Marathon, you will be supporting the largest and one of the most memorable races in the country and helping me achieve support and honor a man I love very, very much. 

All contributions are tax deductible, and every cent counts toward Team's Hope's Fundraising goal. 

Thank you so much for all of your help, and I can't wait to run for you, myself, and my Saba in November.
