THE STORY:

I will be running the Crescent City Classic 10K for my family.My dad was recently diagnosed with Parkinsons in May of 2014, joining his brother Gary, who was diagnosed with the same disease years ago. WIth his diagnosis, I became much more familiar with what can happen and have heard about and witnessed some of the daily struggles that those with this disease deal with. Things that seem so easy all of a sudden become near impossible- writing, typing, opening a water bottle, buckling your own belt, and the list goes on.

 I ask you to please support me in my efforts to help me raise money towards more Parkinson's research to one day find a way to stop this disease in it's tracks!

Thanks,

Allison

Kickin’ Parkinsons is proud to be a Charity Partner of the 2015 Crescent City Classic and hope that you will join us as a Charity Runner, Volunteer or Donor.  This effort is being led by the Steve Reisig family in honor of Steve’s father, Wilbert and his Grandfather, Wilbert  H Reisig, Sr.  We hope that other families and friends of loved ones affected by Parkinson’s will consider joining us on April 4th to show their support.  

When Quentin Dastugue was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 2010, his first action was to volunteer for a Clinical Trial Study using the Fox Trial Finder.  It was during this process that he learned more about the Michael J Fox Foundation and its unrelenting quest to speed a cure of Parkinson’s disease, the world’s second most common degenerative brain disease, impacting nearly 5 million people worldwide. To date, the MJFF has awarded over $400 million in grants and is the largest nonprofit funder of Parkinson’s research in the world.  For those of us who know and love Quentin, his actions are not surprising as he has always responded to adversity and challenge with dignity, action and a great sense of optimism and hope.

Quentin’s next step was to create Kickin’ Parkinson’s  in support of the MJFF joining 1,600 other Team Fox grassroots efforts around the country.  In its third year, Kickin’ Parkinson’s became the 3rd  highest Team Fox fundraiser in the country, raising over $300,000 in 2014.  Due to a grant, 100% of these funds go directly into research for a cure and for medical therapies to alleviate the symptoms for those living with Parkinson’s Disease. 

See you on April 4th!
