EVENT: 2014 GO! FOR A CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2014
Dear friends and family,
On April 5, I will be running my second 5K. My motivation this time is to raise money for the American Parkinson' Disease Association. My dad, Jim, was diagnosed with Parkinson's 7 years ago.
Parkinson’s affects one in every 100 people over the age of 60 living in the U.S. Each year, the Greater St. Louis APDA serves more than 10,000 people with Parkinson’s, caregivers, and medical professionals. By running for this team, I will be playing a key role in the effort to ease the burden and find a cure for Parkinson disease. My parents have benefitted from this group through the programs they offer.
Please consider donating.
