EVENT: 2017 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2017
I am thrilled to once again join the Shawn Thornton Foundation in running the 2017 Boston Marathon to raise funds in the fight to improve the lives of those affected by Parkinson's, especially my Dad, Dave Thompson.
My Dad continues to battle the disease. Rigidity and tremors have proven to be the biggest challenge. But he continues to travel and stay active. He still golfs and maintains a regular stretching and exercise program.
Last year, I raised over $16,000 and my team raised over $50,000! I am so excited to run the Boston Marathon again and to raise more funds for my Dad and everyone afflicted with Parkinson’s.
