Thank you for taking the time to take a look at my page!
It is my third year running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon for PD and my second year running for the Parkinson Foundation of Western PA. I run in honor of my amazing, strong, and active Mom who was diagnosed with PD at only 55 years old. The Foundation has helped her establish her own "Pittsburgh Women with Parkinson's Disease" support group. I am thankful for the resources they provide for the PD community here in Pittsburgh and would like to help their cause in any way I can.
I appreciate everyone's donations and support over the last few years! You are all awesome!

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.
