Kristine and David
Dear Family and Friends,
Although running has never been our sport of choice, we are taking on a run across the Newport Bridge this fall in support of our father. Dad was diagnosed just a couple of years ago with PSP (post supranuclear palsy) and we have watched it progress much too quickly. There is no cure or medication that can treat it at this time, but there are researchers looking to learn more about this rare disease in hopes of helping others in the future.
On Sunday, October 22, 2017, we will run / walk (remember, neither of us are runners!) the 4-mile Pell Bridge Run … we thought it was especially fitting to do this event for Dad given all the hours he spent on the Bridge to keep the lights working! This Challenge gives us the opportunity to raise awareness of PSP. For those who would like to support PSP research with a donation in honor of our run for Dad, we have linked a fundraising page for “Pete’s Team” on the Pell Bridge Run website: www.crowdrise.com/reed
Thanks for your good wishes (I especially am hoping for mild temperatures!) and for keeping Dad in your prayers. We love him.
Love, Kris and Dave
