BENEFITING: Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania
ORGANIZER: Parkinson Foundation of Western Pennsylvania
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
I am running the Pgh Marathon Relay with my son Kyle and my 2 brothers in support of the Parkinson Foundation, Western PA. Parkinson's has hit my family hard with both my dad and mother-in-law battling the disease. They are both very tough individuals that are fighting as best they can against this debilitating disease. I have a lot of love and respect for them and want to do this in their honor and to help this organization that supports the local Parkinson's community.

This is our first year as an Official Charity with the Marathon! We are so excited to get things rocking and rolling. If you run, or know anyone who does, send them our way. We'll welcome them with open arms. They will be helping our local neighbors impacted by Parkinson's and allow us to support our 23 local monthly support groups, develop and deliver cool programs like yoga, boxing, and care giver stress relief. Together, we will replace anxiety with hope.
