EVENT: 2014 GO! FOR A CAUSE
EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2014
When people talk about their passions, you normally think of hobbies or sports. I have an unusual passion (some call it compassion). It's Parkinson's Disease (PD), more specifically, the people that have affected my life the past 9 years who have PD. I have been fortunate enough to teach a free exercise class for people in the community with PD. There are 30 current members, who I will be running for, and about 15 that I will be running in memory of.
I started running 2 years ago and it has also become a passion of mine. I have become healthier and happier, and I'm really looking forward to running for those who can't. Your donation will help with research to find a cure and also to provide client services. Thanks so much for supporting this cause which is so dear to my heart!
APDA has been chosen as an official charity of the 2014 GO! St. Louis Marathon & Family Fitness weekend April 5 and 6, 2014. This means that individuals who are interested in participating in the 5K, Marathon Relay, Half Marathon, or Marathon can commit to run/walk and fundraise on behalf of (and with!) APDA.
