BENEFITING: MICHAEL J FOX FOUNDATION FOR PARKINSONS RESEARCH
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2015
On Saturday, September 12th, Team CRCF Strong will be taking on the NE Parkinson's Ride in Maine. The crew has been out logging training miles and raising funds in support of the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Team CRCF Strong's fearless leader, our Big Pete Marconi. We're already proud of their efforts and of the number of our CRCFers we've been watching power through The Hasting's 20K Burpee Challenge. Your Coaches are ready to do their part again this year!
We are lucky to call Peter Marconi our friend and community member. Pete has Parkinson's Disease, which has caused some muscular rigidity that impacts some of his range of motion, but that doesn't stop him or even slow him down. Pete recently completed 20,000 Burpees to raise money for Parkinson's Research - 6 months ahead of the January 2015 fundraiser deadline! Pete has shared with us research that shows that exercise is an extremely important part of a treatment plan for Parkinson's. His drive to work hard, keep moving, and push past obstacles is an inspiration to us all at CRCF.
